Ourlives - "Higher Hopes" SPAR039


Reykjavik, Iceland's Ourlives were first introduced with the release of their debut US full-length album Den of Lions in the fall of 2014 and since then, the album has charmed fans worldwide. An album almost a decade in the making, the twelve songs on Den of Lions are a heartbreakingly gorgeous examination of love and darkness, intimacy and isolation, and paranoia and clarity. While the band prepares new music, we are proud to present Higher Hopes, a carefully curated b-sides album. Culling songs all the way back from the band's 2009 Icelandic debut, we've assembled a stunning collection of nine songs that consist of b-sides, current studio outtakes, and unreleased songs. Look for the band's new Black River EP to be released this fall.
