are our lives… It’s up to us to make a difference
Ourlives are an explosive emotive expansive four-piece poised and ready at the start of their music recording lives. Ourlives are a band who are clearly capable of injecting their own edge, of making powerful forward-looking life-touching music. Hailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, the music they make is a dramatic crossover hybrid of melodic intelligent progressive post-metal and warm powerful emotional pop rock. Ourlives are not afraid to play with the warmth of old-school guitars, with the analogue dust of keyboards, with the power of silence and the strength that can be found in their harmonious vocals. Ourlives are not a band who are afraid of soothing soaring melodies, of emotional choruses and the idea that less is so often so so much more. The foursome are fusing their ambitious ideas together to produce a sound that’s as potentially epic as their Icelandic landscape, they do this without ever losing sight of the power and strength of pop and the art of keeping it simple.
In the past two years Ourlives have developed their musical approach to reflect the people they are today. “This is how the world sounds to us. This makes sense to us. We’ve come a long way in a short space of time, in that time we’ve grown both as people and as musicians and that’s how we see our lives growing. People follow what they know, rather than what they believe in. There are a few things that we know and one of them is that we change what we want to change. This is what we believe in”.
These are our lives… It’s up to us to make a difference.
|PRESS QUOTES AND SUCH|
this is a bit special. I don’t know what it is about Iceland but it’s produced
more than its fair share of inventive, intriguing bands and artists over
the years and Reykjavik's Our Lives are another act to add to that list.
The wealth of ideas and creativity is so obvious that it's impossible not
to be impressed, even though you get the feeling this is only the
beginning for the band…Our Lives are reminiscent of bands like: (more
recent) Brand New, Muse, Funeral For A Friend, Matchbook Romance, Explosions
In The Sky.” (A Short Fanzine About Rocking)
the intensity og Thrice mixed with the atmosphere of Sigur Ros... Literally
awesome. if you get chance to see them before they are huge, then do it."
