Other Passengers have been quietly floating around the New York scene for a couple years now. Their epic, sweeping music has captivated audiences everywhere they've played. It's easy to classify them as a "New York Sound" due to the dark, brooding elements of their songs, but in reality, there aren't many other groups these days doing what they do. At least not this well. They are playing the FRICTION party tomorrow night at Rothko with Rahim and Foreign Islands (who seem to be popping up everywhere lately). It's been a while since we've last seen these boys play and we're looking forward to reacquainting ourselves.
