At surface level, Kyle Thomas' own thoughts about his new album have hinted to hint at a massive reinvention of his sound, a complete 180 to the beer-spilling, eccentric garage rock he so happily fuelled on previous LP 'Black Moon Spell'. And to an extent, he's right. 'The Other' provides a more expansive and atmospheric landscape that lends itself to various genres and moods - the use of organs, for one, is the most striking, as well as a more ambient feel.
