REVIEW: This Other Eden – Six Seasons EP
What happens when you combine three musically talented brothers with accomplished bassist and an incredibly diverse vocalist – This Other Eden.
These boys have a plethora of previous experience in the Perth music scene having all been in other notable bands over the last few years.
Their debut EP Six Seasons was released at the end of January and has been well received by their growing legion of Perth fans. All five tracks are musically tight with instantly likable melodies that fuse the rock, punk & hardcore sounds into something quite unique and original. Lyrically they step beyond the generic writing that we are all bored of hearing, which makes the tracks more interesting. Vocalist John Kelly has strong vocal ability and performs live seemingly effortlessly. You can be confident that when you see the band live they are every bit as polished as the studio recording. The first single off the EP ‘Shake This’ has received great reviews from their fans, check it out by clicking on the link below. The EP is available on iTunes and I recommend you to listen, after that I have no doubt you will buy it.
Perth band This Other Eden formed in 2011 are John Kelly – Vocals, Grom Lofthouse – Guitar, Ando Lofthouse – Guitar, Benn Lofthouse – Drums & Luke York – Bass.

"MUSIC IS MY LIFE"
This sentence gets banded around by both performers & consumers for as long as I can remember.
But what does that actually mean?
I can only speak for myself, so I will attempt to describe what that means to me. Music can change my headspace from negative to positive within minutes, it can improve my attitude, it stimulates and inspires me, it provides a sound track to important life events and memories, it unites me with like minded souls and saves me from despair when I am challenged by life circumstances. Music gives me hope.
To show my appreciation I work to promote the work of many creative artists, I buy their material, I purchase tickets to see them perform and I spend my money of their merchandise. By supporting and contributing to the international music industry, I play my part in securing its future.
You are welcome!
