Late to a party I should have been to ages ago. Other Lives is an amazing band from Stillwater, Oklahoma. I’ll save my breath, and direct you to the full stream of their sophomore album, Tamer Animals below, but not until you first see their new video for the title track. The repeating city scene microcosm leaves plenty open for interpretation, but on the video for “Tamer Animals”, the question of mercy killing is raised to mind. Is it better to let someone forever act out the mundane, or end it once and for all? Through slow and inevitable change, life can be altered, whether for good or ill.
I bought this album right after hearing “Tamer Animals”, but further proof may be required for you, so here’s the whole album for you gooses and ganders.
