Sounds From The Other City


A two-piece taking the less travelled path around Manchester’s live venues.

Over the past few years O>L>A comprising Dean Jones and Kevan Hartman – have performed on stages at John Rylands Library, Manchester Cathedral and Whitworth Art Gallery and have shared the stage with Here We Go Magic, Future Islands, Zola Jesus, Sylvan Esso and Errors touring constantly in the North West.

Hard to pin down, their music is characterised by it’s questing, forward momentum, guitars and delicate orchestral elements into great dream-pop odysseys.

They have released two EPs since 2013, assembled and performed film scores, including Ron Fricke’s Koyaansqatsi and collaborated on various creative projects with organisations and artists. They plan to release a new single Light Year’s and a new EP titled Call Of The Wild in 2017.
