Dublin based ‘Grunge Pop’ band Otherkin wear the influences pretty obviously on their sleeves, vocalist David Anthonys swagger bares instant similarities to Julian Casablancas but writing them off as a Strokes rip-off would be unfair. Tight guitar riffs, catchy baselines and earworm choruses show skill and insight beyond their years.

This young band from Dublin doesn’t seem the slightest bit concerned. Otherkin are a quartet that makes no-nonsense, two-to-three-minute garage rock/punk tracks born for rock radio. If this were 2004, they’d be gracing the cover of every rock zine. Otherkin released their mouth-watering debut album, OK, via Rubyworks last year, and hopefully 2018 is the year the ‘Kin play in the states. They’re in their true element when they play live, particularly frontman Luke Reilly, who’s one of the finest crowd-surfers you’ll ever see.

Members: David Anthony / Luke Reilly / Rob Summons / Conor Andrew Wynne
