The Other Breed Short Info

The Other Breed are a Donegal based four piece that fuses ambient, textural soundscapes with intricate rhythms resulting in dynamic and energetic live shows.
The band formed in September 2012 and have began gigging in early 2013 establishing a solid fan-base in the North-West before branching out to further afield to Derry, Tyrone, Leitrim, and Dublin playing along side some of the best up and coming bands in the country at the moment such as Makings and Youth Mass.

In December 2014 their debut EP 'Weirdo's In The Kitchen' was released and launched to a capacity crowd in The Greenroom Letterkenny. 2015 started with YouBloom including the band in their list of 10 bands they expect to break through this year.

A second live EP was released in May that was recorded in the Balor Arts Centre in Ballybofey.

Currently the band are in the middle of a busy summer of live shows which includes several festival appearances such as Sea Sessions Surf and Music Festival, Swell Festival, YouBloom and Ballinamore Free Fringe Festival.
