Otherkin Unleash ‘Bad Advice’

With the release of their clattering new single ‘Bad Advice’, Irish garage punks Otherkin are getting ready to take over 2017.

Formed in Dublin in 2014, united by a common love of The Clash, QOTSA, Ramones and Blur; the band cut their teeth playing house parties and dive bars before stepping up onto the Irish festival circuit – Longitude, Electric Picnic, Hard Working Class Heroes and Other Voices to name a few.

After a couple of hand-made, self-released tracks, Otherkin hit their stride with the rowdy grunge-pop single “AY AY”, which came to the attention of leading Irish indie label Rubyworks in early 2015.

The 201 EP – featuring “AY AY” and “Feel It” – a four-tracker of garage rock thumpers released to coincide with their UK festival debut at Reading / Leeds and their first full-length UK tour. Radio exposure came courtesy of Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 and John Kennedy on Radio X, while MTV Rocks added videos for both songs into their new music playlists.

The follow up release – The New Vice EP – was a further statement of intent, attracting more attention from UK daytime radio and making inroads in continental Europe (their debut European show at Eurosonic was voted one of the five best shows of the festival by Dutch station 3FM).

The band built on this momentum with multiple knock out festival spots in the UK, Holland, France and Germany in summer 2016, getting rave reviews for their wild live shows from NME and The Guardian. They wrapped up their summer with a high-profile slot supporting the Red Hot Chili Peppers at a massive open-air concert in Belfast.

Otherkin rounded out 2016 in the Irish countryside putting the finishing touches to their eagerly awaited debut album.

Lead-off single ‘Bad Advice’ is out on Rubyworks on Thursday 9th March on all streaming and download platforms.

The single is produced by the band with David Prendergast and Jason Boland, and has been mixed in London by Jolyon Thomas (Slaves / Royal Blood / U2).

Bad Advice is a song about the push and pull impulses of a chaotic relationship that should lead to self-destruct but somehow leads to the exact opposite.” – Otherkin.

Otherkin head out on a 16 date UK tour in March, including 8 shows with The Amazons this month.
