Other Lives: Ritual

Other Lives began as a band called Kunek out of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Rechristened Other Lives in 2008, they released their first album under that name a year later, an atmospheric gem of a record that marries an orchestral rock sound with the sensibility of a classic singer/songwriter vibe. They returned for another batch of majestic, pastoral folk-rock in 2011, which led them to perform with the likes of Bon Iver and Radiohead over the next year. They’ve taken a break since then to prepare a new album called Rituals, and if there are two clichés worth using to describe the record, they would be: 1) the third time is the charm; and 2) it has been worth the wait.
