Other Body bring new South Florida sounds to Will's Pub


Young Miami skronk trio Other Body are part of a young vanguard of new bands from Miami – influenced by the noise weirdness coming out of the Churchill’s/Rat Bastard nexus – that are reinvigorating guitar music in South Florida along with Period Bomb, Teepee, Smut and Pariuh. Other Body deal in a molten, volcanic hybrid of post-rock and psychedelia where riffs and vocal melodies bend and warp under torque and tension from an unforgiving rhythm section. But like the best U.K. shoegaze, the tunes underneath are undeniable. The band are taking the songs from their recent Total Bust mini-album out for a road-test on a brief “Florida or Bust” tour, trading in the fetid heat of Miami for … well, more fetid heat, but still. With locals Junior Bruce, Uh, and Freakazoid on board, this bill is pretty much a précis on the state of new, weird Florida heaviness.
