One of my most treasured beats for happy ears and moving feet. Other Lives, a band hailing from Stillwater Oklahoma, has that ability to sink you deep into personal thought whilst, simultaneously, plastering a smile across your face and forcing you to jump in a car and take a road trip. This song in particular, “For 12” was a summer staple for my senses. I blasted it through our VW bus as we drove to and fro, back and forth on the highways of California’s coastal lands. Opening for Bon Iver and Radiohead in the past, they’ve certainly gained esteem over the years. I fell in love with their rhythmic “galloping” tunes during last year’s Coachella, and I hope you enjoy also. If you know and love them already… do just that… leave some love!
