The other end

 

We are The other end

 

The Other End is a duo from Bergen, Norway, playing indie/slowcore. We take turns playing guitar, bass, piano and a homemade drum. The two of us have known each other for several years, and we started exchanging musical ideas back in 2015, but it wasn’t until late 2016 we decided to really go all in with the band. During the summer of 2017 we recorded the self-titled EP together with renowned producer Iver Sandøy (Enslaved, Kraków etc.) at Solslottet Studio. The EP is set to release March 16th. All music written and performed by The Other End.

 

Vocals, Guitar, Bass / Ida Knoph-Solholm
Guitar, Bass, Piano, Drum, Vocals / Alexander Breidvik
 

 

«With a majestuous production and amazing vocals, The Other End‘s debut track 'Far from Home' could be described as the Scandinavian answer to London Grammar or Julien Baker.»

- Arnaud Marty, HighClouds

«The hypnotic and haunting melody hooked me after the first listen.»

- Dean Cramer, Kings of A&R

«Their single 'Far from Home' is simply goosebumps. Hypnotic, melancholic, poignant and catalyst of emotions. Surely the voice of Ida is something precious and distinctive, but even the very small use of the instrumentation does its duty.»

- Riccardo Cavrioli, Indie for Bunnies

«Only rarely you stumble upon a debut single by a band that is of such high quality that you instantly long for more  material than just this one tune. Bergen-based two-piece The Other End and their first musical output Far From Home deliver a tremendous example for that.» 

- Norman Fleischer, Nothing but Hope and Passion

«The sparse, echoing landscape of the song is haunted by one of the finest vocal performances I’ve heard of late. Set spines to tingle.»

- Tom Finnerty, Super World Indie Tunes

Lyrics

Far from Home

Time stop running
Suddenly and still
World start spinning
Blindfold on my mind

This I know
Don’t let go

I’ve never felt this far from home
Pieces of me yet to show
I want you to know
You are my home

The ocean’s pulsing
Forever through my heart
All that matters
Don’t drift away

This I know
Don’t let go

I’ve never felt this far from home
Pieces of me yet to show
I want you to know
You are my home

This I know
This I know
This I know
Don’t let go

I’ve never felt this far from home
Pieces of me yet to show
I want you to know
You are my home
