The Other End have been labeled «... one of the most exciting new bands from Scandinavia», and got international praise for their cutting edge sound and exploration of slowcore and dark indie pop when entering the music scene in Norway in 2018.
The release of their 5-track debut-EP saw them being signed by Just Isn't Music (Ninja Tune) and earned them a spot at ØYA 2018. The EP was recorded live in studio together with renowned producer Iver Sandøy (Enslaved, Wardruna), and was hailed as «... one of the finest records you'll hear this year» by Super World Indie Tunes.
The band has been compared to acts such as London Grammar, The xx and Daughter, and reviewers have characterized their music as «simply spellbinding» and «beautifully haunting».
