Other Lives floored me with lush melodies and interesting instrumentation when the band played our official showcase at SXSW a few years ago. "Dynamic, orchestral pop" is probably the best way to describe it and, suffice it to say, it's stunning in a live setting. The group creates rich layers of sound that are carefully sculpted, yet somehow float with lightness.

The band recently returned to our studios to celebrate the release of its sophomore release, Tamer Animals, which is finally starting to win Other Lives the attention the group deserves — as well as a slot touring with Bon Iver. At KCRW, we see big things ahead for the Oklahoma band.
