The Other Life Shows Artistic Depth With Enigmatic New Single “Moody”
In today’s culture, it seems everything revolves around notoriety. Clicks and likes are the currency of our times and often artistic expression can become an afterthought. In opposition to this modern ethos, The Other Life is a new electronic music project based in Gothenburg, Sweden, that concedes precious little about itself. It is the work of a single musician who has chosen not to reveal his face or name but to put all the focus on his music. Now the incredibly enigmatic and mysterious project has released an adventurous and intoxicating new single “Moody.”
“Moody” draws inspiration from bands like Joy Division and Public Image Ltd. The new single from the fresh up-and-coming alternative pop artist The Other Life is a truly hypnotic track rife with infectious melody, conscious lyrics and gritty electronic vibe. This new tune has been gaining the artist notoriety in the music underground rapidly and for good reason.
Moody’s synth and old school drum machine sounds bring back the days of 80’s dance clubs. The record’s sound was inspired by the post-punk era, combining the immediacy of punk with the glossy, energetic production of modern dance music. With its direct yet dynamic lyrics subtly moving into deeper territory. Perhaps The Other Life’s deep brooding style isn’t for everyone but discerning listeners looking for something slightly nostalgic and boldly adverse to the times will enjoy this one for sure.
