Other Lives are an American indie rock band from Stillwater, Oklahoma.

The band originally formed in 2004 as Kunek and released one album in 2006 under that name. Other Lives' self-titled album was released physically April 7, 2009 by TBD Records[2] and digitally March 17, 2009.[3] The album was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Joey Waronker. The lead single "Black Tables"[3] was featured on the 16th episode of season three, "Things Fall Apart" of the television show Ugly Betty, the first episode of season five, "In the Light" of the television show "Covert Affairs", Dream a Little Dream of Me, Part 1 of the television show Grey's Anatomy, and the episode Every Picture Tells A Story of the television show One Tree Hill.[citation needed]

Band members are Jesse Tabish (vocals, piano, guitar and percussion), Jenny Hsu (cello and backing vocals), Jon Mooney (violin, horns, piano and percussion), Colby Owens (clarinet and percussion) and Josh Onstott (bass and percussion).

"For 12" was featured as KCRW's "Today's Top Tune" on October 27, 2010. Other Lives finished working on their latest album Tamer Animals in February 2011. The album was released on May 10th 2011 in the USA and August 29th 2011 in UK/Europe. Thom Yorke, of Radiohead, has released a remix of the title track.

In the summer of 2011, the band toured with S. Carey and The Rosebuds. Following a month of shows in the UK, the band joined Bon Iver in September in the USA and Canada and played at Iceland Airwaves festival. The band returned to the UK in October to support Chapel Club in London on October 18th. The band opened for Radiohead on the first leg of their 2012 North American tour in February and March, 2012, and also played 2012 Coachella Festival.

In September 2011, Other Lives launched their Wirewax interactive website tameranimals.com which was built around the band's official video for "For 12" and allows users to access audio and visual content within the video. They continue to tour Europe in summer 2012, and return to the US for a tour in the fall, to be followed by another album recording session in the winter and spring of 2013.
