9-piece indie orchestra Other Animals have announced that they’re set to release their debut UK single Oh Lordy on December 9th 2016.

The band who hail from Melbourne, Australia blend big choruses with heartfelt emotion and soaring vocals which makes you think they drink from the same well of invention to the likes of Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. ‘Oh Lordy is a perfect sentiment to that with its roaring melodies and crushing guitars.

Their album (due out next year) is to be a stellar showcase of the band’s unique production, arranging orchestral flutes, violins, clarinets and trumpets against a theatrical rhythm section and monstrous rock vocals.

“Other Animals take the audience through a bizarre, yet touching set with songs of loss, anarchistic rants and psychedelic adventures; they capture what it is to be an open-minded individual who is sick of pop music — sick of disingenuous, formula-based, crowd-pleasing music.” Dave Adams, Singer
