Otherkin are a four-piece hailing from Kildare made up of a designer, a marketing graduate and two medical students. The band are about to release their debut EP, “Broken English”, with a launch gig planned for 5th June.
An eclectic range of musical backgrounds, from alternative indie to hardcore punk, has allowed Otherkin to craft a unique sound that blends elements of lo-fi 90’s Americana and forward-thinking new wave, all the while incorporating the accessibility you wouldn’t normally associate with either genre.
They are a DIY band in the full sense of the word, being involved in the production of every aspect of the band’s output, be it directing music videos, designing merchandise or self-producing their debut EP. They’re feeling hungry, thinking big and intend on following up their debut release with a string of live dates in the coming months.
Check out Otherkin live at The Workman’s Club on 5th June for their EP launch.
