Announce Sicily Sessions
Due 11th December on Play It Again Sam
Latest album ‘For Their Love’ out now
Six months since releasing their critically acclaimed album For Their Love in the height of lockdown, Portland’s OTHER LIVES return with stripped back demo versions of the songs from their fourth studio album.
Initially written and demoed by Jesse Tabish (piano, guitar, lead vocals) in Sicily along with his wife Kim, Sicily Sessions showcases the early creative processes that went into the songs.
One of the most provoking and powerful arrangements of this year. Brooding vocals hypnotise, the lyrics speak truth and resonate honesty. Other Lives has this profound ability to captivate their audience. The instrumentation of Sound of Violence assists to the compelling and complex exploration. Yet, at the same time the powerful chords and intense instrumentation showcases the charm of this vital act.
Jesse says of the recordings: “After the 2016 election, Kim and I decided it was time to take a break from the USA. After a long road trip through Europe we ended up in a small town on the island of Sicily called Castellammare del Golfo. There we found such peace and a way of life that inspired putting down the computer and getting back to a more basic form of songwriting. The result was the sketches of what would become For Their Love. We hope you enjoy these early musings.”
The full set of demos will be released digitally on 11th December, alongside avery limited run of cassette tapes (preorder here).
