Other Lives Turner Hall Ballroom Live Review
I was tardy to the venue, but fortunate enough to catch Copenhagen's "Indians," the alter ego of Søren Løkke Juul. The overall sound was rather pleasant as his soothing voice was accompanied by both keys and acoustic guitar. In all honesty, it was probably one of the more enjoyable openers that I have seen in recent months and I'm fairly certain it won't be long before Indians make their way back as the main act.
For the encore Tabish took the stage solo, playing piano to "Black Tables" from their self titled debut album, Other Lives. Again he thanked the audience saying "thank you for the warm welcome" and "we didn't expect this." Also asking what kind of beer to check out, with suggestions coming from every direction, he replied jokingly, "I'll just drink 15 different beers and get piss drunk" and then went on to finish the set.
As stated above, I went into this show expecting nothing and I walked away with a feeling that I can't quite put my finger on, but it's one I get from few shows. Gaining a strong sense of what Other Lives is capable of, especially live, I wouldn't expect them to be going anywhere soon. From the atmosphere to the sound, the overall show was perfect and I would encourage you to see them live and at the very least listen to Tamer Animals and/or Mind the Gap EP.
