Charlie Drinkwater (frontman) about the LP: “It’s a more ‘open’ set of songs,
both musically and in our themes; in the process of writing we found ourselves
talking about things other than anger or aggression. We wanted to discuss love,
loss and joy too. It’s a record about personal disintegration and destruction, but
also rebuilding again after this.”

Louder Than War: “TV Priest’s debut Uppers was written in the heady before times and revolved around a heady swirl of chaos and noise. It made a relatively big splash in the void of unprecedented times but left the band stranded, untested and unable to tour… Follow-up My Other People is a more restrained and reflective piece of work, informed at least in part by that shared sense of enforced ennui and frontman Charlie Drinkwater’s shored up mental health… There are still elements of The Fall in the taut rhythms and the brief but potent guitar flashes are occasionally reminiscent of Jon Spencer or J. Mascis. As a whole piece, though, My Other People sees TV Priest continue to map out their own increasingly intriguing identity. The Golden Cleric beckons.”

Turn Up The Volume: References? The ferocious passion of The Afghan Whigs and its frontman Greg Dulli‘s vocal exorcism, the sombre contemplations and crooner timbre
of The National, well, if they junked-up their sound and here and there devilsh echoes
of the legendary, destructive, The Birthday Party with Nick Cave trying to rip his own
heart out all the time.

TV Priest is one of those rare bands that trigger the dark side of your psyche and
challenge you to get rid of its demons through cutting soul-searching. Score: 4,5/5.
