This moody Swedish dance duo has more in common with Joy Division than the modern electronic scene, but fans of dance music from New Wave to EDM should really appreciate their new EP, Moody, a great deal.
Release in November, the EP features the single “Moody” and two great remixes of the track. The music video (below) for “Moody” dropped in mid December and plays like a hypnotic art film scored by the brooding dance track. The thumping beat, Brit pop influence, and goth sensibilities place The Other Life alongside the like of Public Image Ltd, New Order, and the aforementioned Joy Division in sound, aesthetic, and replay ability.
Check out this week’s New Music Monday selection, “Moody”, and get your Monday morning dance on!
Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
