The Other Tribe - August / September / October 2013

25 October Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Okay, so I've been a bit slack with the entire blog in the last few months. But I am back, and I plan to get this blog back up and running again. And I'm going to kick this off with The Other Tribe. They were there for me on the week I struggled picking a New Release, and if it weren't for Aiden Grimshaw, I may never had found this amazing band.

The Other Tribe, are a five-piece band from Bristol, consisting of James Hill, Miles Metric, Ollie White, Alex Oldroyd and Max Cleary. They were a six piece involving Charlie Brown, however Charlie has left the band as far as I can tell, with no reason behind the departure.  

They have released three singles called "Skirts", "Sing With Your Feet" and "My Girl". The former and the latter proved popular on my blog, as well as gaining high ratings from me. They also released a three-track single in collaboration with Kidnap Kid and Eats Everything. As well as releasing a free download via Facebook for the song "We Should Be Dancing".

This band may still be emerging, but "Skirts" got into the UK top 40, making this band my highest charting Artist Of The Month, so far. But their other singles have not faired quite so well, despite performing at many festivals including Glastonbury. 

Their fans are all waiting for an album, but can they really release an album, that may be amazing, but not gain enough sales to chart? I think a couple more singles need to be released before hand to gain more popularity.

This band is an artist we all should be keeping our eyes on, because they will make it big, one way or another. As one of my previous five Artists of the Month have done. 

I can't wait to see what is around the corner for these guys. I'm kind of hoping a lot of great charting hits, an awesome album, and a sell-out tour. This band knows how to push themselves and they will get to where they want to go.
