Check out our interview with Norwich’s finest punk band – Other Half!
We talk about their upcoming debut album Big Twenty, the concepts behind it and how it was a cathartic process making it.
We also talk about Bargain Hunt, sharks and poo. Just ‘coz.
A little about Other Half:
Meeting in 2012 through a love of the UK DIY scene and their time split between previous outfits—including Maths, Ducking Punches and Manbearpig—Cal Hudson (guitar, vocals), Alfie Adams (drums) and Sophie Porter (bass, vocals) began writing songs together in Adams’ basement bedroom.
From the indie rock cynicism of Archers of Loaf and Arab Strap, to the discord and energy of bands like Hot Snakes and Unwound, the band have spent the past few years weaving their individual influences together and now deal in a confident, unique brand of scathing storytelling and abrasive punk.
The trio have previously released a four-way split on Venn Records with Yarraman, Grieving and Yr Poetry, and have performed at The Fest, Florida, and Pouzza Fest, Montreal. They have toured mainland Europe and the UK with Dikembe and Ducking Punches and have shared the stage with the likes of Meat Wave, Jamie Lenman, PUP, Pinegrove, Front Bottoms, Part Chimp, The Hotelier, Joe Talbot (IDLES) and Lemuria.
They have had numerous plays on BBC Introducing, and are set to collaborate on a remix of one of their album tracks with Cremation Lily.
