Interview With Your Other Lover
RATTLES YOUR ELECTRONS INTO SUBMISSION AND MAKES YOUR EARS INVOLUNTARILY MENSTRUATE
We are your dirty little secret wrapped up in beautiful melancholy;
We are the eloquence you lack and the passion you desire;
We are your curiosity;
We are the guilt that you hide and the indignity you feel;
We are the devil on your shoulder;
We are Your Other Lover and your secret is safe with us . . .
Your Other Lover are a dark, loud and exciting four-piece from that London. They draw from a diverse range of influences including shoegaze, noisecore and goth bands (such as The Jesus & Mary Chain, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Raveonettes and The Cure) to create a brutal but infectious sound that is equal parts doom, gloom and raw aggression, with enough fuzzed-out distortion and thundering bass to rattle your electrons into submission and to make your ears involuntarily menstruate. Led by Dan Smith’s Interpol-esque baritone Your Other Lovers’ live presence is gargantuan, leaving open mouths and devastation wherever they go. Think My Bloody Valentine wrestling drunkenly on a carpet of broken glass with Brian Jonestown Massacre and you’re edging closer to whatever truth still exists in this rapidly disintegrating world.
You can download Kerouac here for nowt. It’s dirty, dark, dank and more dangerous than roller-skating around Lagos wearing a waistcoat made of diamonds and dollars. I’m sure you’ll agree that these photos they’ve submitted to us are true to their ethos and aligned with their shadowy sound.
