Last month, Other Lives came to town and held the huddled crowd at the Gramophone rapt for the duration of its set. If you're struggling to place the name it might be rattling around in your brain because the band will open for Radiohead at the sold-out Scottrade Center on Friday.
Other Lives plays richly orchestrated, desolate music. Before that show in February, we brought the band to the future home of Work/Play in the Grove to perform the title track from last year's stunning LP Tamer Animals. We'll have an exclusive video for you in this space tomorrow morning; for now you can take a look behind the scenes of the shoot.
