Formed in Dublin in 2014, OTHERKIN hit their stride with the boisterous grunge-pop single “Ay Ay”, which came to the attention of leading Irish indie label Rubyworks in early 2015. Two EP releases followed, The 201 EP – released to coincide with their UK festival debut at Leeds / Reading and their first full-length UK tour – and ‘The New Vice’ EP – featuring “I Was Born” and “Yeah I Know”. Early Radio exposure came courtesy of support from Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Clara Amfo on BBC Radio 1 and John Kennedy on Radio X, while MTV Rocks added their videos into their new music playlists. “Yeah I Know” was championed by Lars Ulrich of Metallica on his Beats 1 radio show, the track has gone on to be OTHERKIN’s breakout streaming hit. UK shows with Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dead Kennedys quickly followed.
