OtherSong is a collection of chilled, downtempo tracks from the past three years. Music critics noted that Longing for Orpheus' debut album, Skye, contained a wide range of styles within its overarching genre - OtherSong continues this trend, featuring tracks that represent Balearic Beat (EverSoul), Ambient (EmberSpeed), New Age (CloverLight), and Progressive Electronic (ForestWake) subgenres. The array of grooves, folk instruments, and layered synthesis contribute to an album designed to fully engage the curiosity of listeners who loves to explore new combinations of sounds, without distracting those looking for a soundtrack to their daily lives.
