The Other Tribe

“Bristolian 5-piece set to dominate the festival season with their psychedelic, sun-drenched sound." MIXMAG “This barmy bunch will make you want to paint your body neon and dance in a muddy field” THE GUARDIAN “The Other Tribe fuse guitar riffs with throbbing synths in a raved-up whirlpool of live energy” CLASH “The quintet are an instrumental force like few others of their time” DANCING ASTRONAUT “A rich sonic cross section between deep tribal house and electronic soul” EARMILK

Since releasing their debut chart single, Skirts, it has become something of a summer anthem. It’s bought a little sunshine to places as far apart as Glastonbury, Bestival, and the Secret Garden Party; to Ibiza, Mallorca, and the Alps.

After it’s release, the band played shows up and down the country, bringing the party wherever they could. They released three more tracks, honing their sound and feeding the online babble surrounding the band: Sing With Your Feet, We Should Be Dancing, and Your Kisses. All became online and live favourites. My Girl, their second single release, continued the build. Another track, titled Nobody Else, from their recent recording sessions, was posted in December 2013; an enticing hint of the album to come. Ollie and Miles, the two DJs in the band also posted a series of mixes online, showing off the band’s influences and leading to a run of DJ bookings.

The five friends from Bristol – James, Miles, Ollie, Alex and Max - have come some way since forming at University three years ago. Those years are being distilled in to what will be an incendiary debut, soaking up their musical influences and with plenty of the excitement of their live shows thrown in.
