ALBUM: The Otherness – ‘The Otherness’

Having already started to make a name for themselves in the UK, Argentina’s The Otherness are prepping for a UK tour that aims to promote the proliferation of grassroots venues.

This desire to do everything in their power to support grassroots venues is just one example of their unparalleled love for music, something which is mirrored in their debut album, The Otherness. 

Derivative of greats like The Beatles and The Shadows in the doo-wop-esque harmonies of ‘Your Carnival,’ displaying a penchant for British rock & roll, but with a bubbling undertone of warmth and sunshine which nods perfectly to their sunnier home climate evident in ‘I Bet He Knows.’

Flitting even in the space of a song between frantic, jivey tempos and slower, foot-tapping moments – just enough to catch your breath – The Otherness keeps you on your toes. And so it should; it’s a record that’s made to dance to, made to be seen live. And it’s a sign that The Otherness are ready to take the world (and all its grassroots music venues) by storm.
