Artist Info: 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 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).
