Music Box season 2, session #18: Otherkin

Garage punk-rock band dropped by The Independent's studio in between a massive UK and Europe tour

Music Box #18: Otherkin

Ireland is pushing out exciting new acts at an astonishing rate and Otherkin are no exception.

We've covered this garage punk-rock four-piece a couple of times - they've been together for just over three years but have already racked up some of the biggest festivals in the UK and Europe, plus an opening slot for Guns N' Roses at Slane Castle in May.

Their debut album OK was released in September and it's a belter - scuzzy guitar riffs, furious energy and raucous vocals.

The guys dropped by the studio before a London show and Conor and Luke played three tracks off the new album: "Bad Advice", "I Was Born" and "Come On, Hello".

Having seen them live it was - as it often is with Music Box - slightly odd to see them tone it down so much in the session.

Live the band are this maelstrom that tears through the room: in Music Box the songs have a different energy.

Check out Otherkin's session (above) and catch them live in the UK from 4 December. Their debut album OK is out now.
