Other Animals Short Info

OTHER ANIMALS are the Australian 9-piece that left Melbourne, the country’s greatest city for live music, to relocate to European pastures. Fast forward to late 2016 and the band have finished their debut album: a gargantuan rock opera that underscores the bands eclectic experience in songwriting. The flute, horns, strings and percussion are pure icing. Delicious, indulgent and probably bad for your teeth.

OTHER ANIMALS are ... New. And old. Light and shade. They are every James Bond theme. They are the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour, in black and white. They are equal parts heavy and majestic.

"A stellar showcase of unique production, arranging orchestral flutes, violins, clarinets and trumpets against a theatrical rhythm section and
monstrous rock vocals.” Broken Arrow Magazine

December of 2016 saw Other Animals release their first single Oh Lordy! into the wild, accompanied by a haunting music video featuring London Contemporary Ballet Theatre’s own Rose Alice. The explosive track was met with critical acclaim, spending 12 weeks straight on rotation on the Planet Rock playlist and providing a raucous anthem to a string of summer festivals across the UK and Australia.

"It starts off all soft and pretty, but don’t let that fool you. Oh Lordy! is a big ol’ hard rocker - a bit like (...) Rival Sons, with that blend of soulful vocals and big, stylish riffage.” TeamRock.com

The second single is set to drop in early June 2017, with the hotly anticipated debut album ready for release later in the year amidst a jam-packed summer tour of festivals and shows.

The band’s wildly successful crowdfunding campaign for a tour van (which overshot the target within the first half of the campaign) has provided the means for Other Animals to infect audiences with their boisterous energy all around Europe and the UK, with festival slots and
shows already on the board in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Scotland.

This band takes the audience through a bombastic, yet touching set with songs of loss, anarchistic rants and psychedelic adventures.

In the small time this wall-breaking outfit has been officially out of its cage, Other Animals have managed to lock down main stage festival slots at:

Summer Sessions GER / Midsummer Madness UK / Rovin Fest UK

Livestock Festival UK / SoMac UK / Swanfest UK / Tadstock UK

Folk Rhythm & Life AUS / Jazz Fringe UK / Lechlade Festival UK /

Suffolks May Fair UK / Wildfire Festival UK / Midsummer Fiesta

UK / Gloucestershire Carnival UK

"(Other Animals) blend big choruses with heartfelt emotion and soaring vocals, which makes you think they drink from the same well of invention as the likes of Radiohead and Jeff Buckley.” Photogroupie.com

Keep your eyes peeled for their imminent debut album. It means business.
