Hailing from Stillwater, Oklahoma, five-piece Other Lives have been making waves across Europe and the US this year, selling out venues with their critically acclaimed sophomore album Tamer Animals. Their intricately textured music with complex orchestrations have made a huge impact on audiences as they pull you in from start to finish with breathtaking intensity.

Fresh from touring with Bon Iver, we caught the band ahead of their sold out headline show at The Lexington in North London. Our plans to film the band in a nearby churchyard were scuppered by a deluge of typical British summer rain so we were forced indoors where we set up camp in the back corner of the packed pub. The backdrop of animal skulls and hunting paraphernalia, along with the dim lighting of the pub gave the song "Tamer Animals" an eerie aesthetic to accompany the lyrics.

It was this mood and the lyrics that inspired the animation, one of the most integrated pieces we've attempted before. Created out of plasticine and natural materials, the entire set was built in Matt's home studio and shot over 2 days using Dragon stop motion software.

Other Lives are back in the UK in October, touring with Chapel Club. Do what you must to get a ticket to one of their shows!!
