THE OTHER BONES
The Other Bones are a Portland, Maine-based trio comprised of Andrew Mead (synth, guitar, production), Eric Bruce (guitar), and Loretta Allen (vocals, synth). The group embraces contemporary electronic production while featuring soulful vocals and powerful rock guitars to create a unique blend of sounds. While finding it difficult to draw comparisons to the band's sound, one reviewer commented that the band is "Adele meets The XX" while others have made comparisons to MGMT, Kimbra, and Passion Pit.
Hinges, the album about a year, is the perfect snapshot of a band in the midst of a decisive debut year. In the seven months since their inception, The Other Bones have been diligently producing videos, releasing material, and building up a strong, social-media-driven fan base while compiling their EP. The album was recorded and co-produced by The Other Bones and Jon Wyman (Rustic Overtones, Sparks The Rescue, Dean Ford), all of whom worked to retain the unity of sound that defines The Other Bones' live show. From the electro-leaning rock opener "Not This Way" to the 90's-R&B-infused "The Bad In Goodbye" to the anthemic "Feels Like Home," Hinges is a promising first glimpse of a band ready to make an impact.
