Power pop group Other Houses has premiered its restless Elliot Smith-inspired track “Me As Periodicals” with a wistful video peppered with quirky touches (think full-band chess matches and whirling disco balls). The garage rock imbued track is pulled from their forthcoming mini album Fortune Selector. Watch the full video via Punknews today.
“I wrote this song to be a panic attack about leaving your legacy in Internet links,” vocalist Morgan Enos says of the track. “We recorded it in an after-hours art supply store, then we realized a friend had a key to the local Grange Hall so we shot the video there, on borrowed time.”
Previously the solo brainchild of Morgan Enos (Hollow Sunshine, Medium Mystic, Hheaven), Other Houses has blossomed into a fully loaded rock band thanks to Californian players Adam Nash (guitar), Alex Nash (drums), and Ross Major (bass) who appear on the album and new NY-based live players drummer Stephen Lee Clark (Field Agent, Deafheaven) and Dave Lucas (Twiga).
Fortune Selector is the third entry in Iron Pier’s Mini-LP series, a home for releases with album-length concepts but shorter run times. Fortune Selector follows Hollow Sunshine’s Bible Sea and Self Defense Family’s Colicky. The first edition of Fortune Selector will be available as a limited edition white-label 12”, a cassette, and digital download on July 14, 2017, via Iron Pier. More news coming soon.
