Stats - Other People's Lives Vinyl LP
Stats Other People's Lives Vinyl LP
London dance band Stats release their debut album Other People's Lives. Recorded at London's prestigious RAK Studios, the record ricochets between 1970s art rock, 80s synth grooves and cosmic disco-pop. The aim at RAK was to ditch structure and embrace spontaneity. "This way you can capture the moment of inspiration," Seed says. "The special energy of six people losing themselves in what they're doing, and somehow synchronising into something none of them could have planned."
The sessions produced funk-tinged pieces of electronic-pop that now accompany Seed's compelling storytelling of humanity, domesticity, routine, love, loss and new fatherhood. Other People's Lives investigates the gaps in the stories we tell about our lives. Seed explains: "This album is about recognising that my life story is full of holes. The world encourages me to experience my life as a narrative: a story in which I am the lead character, going on a journey, moving towards the discovery and realisation of an authentic self. Other people's lives are presented to me as coherent, relatable stories, full of passion and travel and wonder."
Stats are a refreshing, modern band with a debut album that captures the now, the fleeting, the fickle and the forgotten – like that perfect moment lost on the dance floor – yet it presents it in a musical way that avoids being trapped to a time and place.
