OTHER LIVES | OTHER LIVES
The Stillwater, Oklahoma band of multi-instrumentalists Other Lives has been making music together for over five years but only recently adopted their current name. The band features Jesse Tabish (vocals, piano, guitar, harmonium, organ, electric harpsichord), Josh Onstott (bass, mellotron, backing vocals), Jonathon Mooney (piano, violin, electric harpsichord), Colby Owens (drums, lap steel) and Hsu (cello, piano, backing vocals). Other Lives is filled with lush instrumentation and achingly beautiful vocals, yet maintains an organic quality that incorporates elements of indie rock, folk and classical music. Each of the songs are densely layered and poignant elegies on heartache, resulting in a wonderfully accomplished album.
