Trumpet, electronics, composer. Rowan is the Mystic principle of true cause channelled in fleshy matter. He works to defend the fountain of joy at the centre of existence through sonic outpourings. His other hobbies include giving up biscuits.
Elly, a vocalist who is the essence of the living cosmos in the form of a human voice. A diamond reflecting timeless stories of love and pain into a thousand shimmering phrases, drenched in the screaming consciousness of all beings. Her favourite biscuit is a shortbread finger.
On vocals and keys. Billie likes to meditate upon the brevity of life, the delicate and complex forces that bind experience together, and the sources of artistic inspiration or rebirth. She also makes a very good halloumi sandwich.
On drums! Emma is an astrophile meanderer and sardonic night traveller suspicious of those who claim to know the truth. She takes her bins out on a Thursday.
On bass. A swirling vortex of blistering funk and spiralling harmonies in the form of a man. an unholy Goliath of groove whose polyrhythmic tentacles embrace the multiverse. He likes his coffee with milk and no sugar.
“The Other Way has a totally unique sound and aesthetic, with a message that is urgently relevant to today.” James Keay, Gifford’s Circus
