Othrship, the Gadigal/ Sydney-based experimental psych-rock project of Henry Manuell announces the release of the band’s latest single and music video ‘Looking For A New Home’ out on February 17.
‘Looking For A New Home’ is Othrship’s first release since their 2019 EP ‘Lift Off’. Leaning into their groovy intergalactic sound, their latest release is full of dreamy saxophone, warm synths and echoing vocals.
Part one of a trilogy, ‘Looking For A New Home’ tells the story of the Othrship crew. Tasked with the impossible mission of finding a new home for their people, the clip starts in the middle of their journey. Accompanied by a music video directed and shot by Bonnie Chai, viewers follow the uncertainty of the voyage.
Unravelling the crew’s journey through space, the track explodes with a heavy rock riff adding to the tension of the ‘Looking For A New Home’ music video. The guitar drones before hitting hard with drums and brass.
In the first verse, we are met with the captain’s internal dialogue through its lyrics as the instrumental matches with soothing harmonies. Paired with celestial synths, the resonating sounds cradle before hitting with the booming guitar once more.
Vaguely influenced by David Bowie, Tame Impala and progressive rock of the 70s, Othrship’s experimental sound marries jazz and orchestral elements for the contemporary listener.
The experimental outfit has received praise and airplay from radio stations 4ZZZ, Banks Radio Australia, Phoenix FM, Coral Coast FM, BBB FM, SYN FM, amongst others in Australia, as well as being added to the Spotify Local Noise and Good Intent’s Good Friday playlists. The four-piece has also supported NSW bands The Tin Knees and Dial Tone.
‘Looking For A New Home’ pulls you into a sci-fi fantasy, leaving you wanting more. Available on all platforms February 17, let Othrship guide you on a journey that makes you move.
