On the Road With Otherkin, Ireland’s Next Big Thing (Part 1)

If there’s one band who are proving themselves to be a direct product of the overwhelmingly successful punk rock revival, then it’s Irish quartet Otherkin. The Dublin rockers combine a sense of relentless energy with infectious riffs, pulsating rhythms and a live show like no other. Debut album OK, which we spoke about here, is out now, with the band trekking across the length and breadth of Europe in support of it. Photographer Jack Parker joined them for the first five shows in Holland, Belgium and Germany, and has provided us with a gallery of personal favourites below.
