The Sydney-based duo Royel Otis have released their 2nd single, “Without U,” out today via House Anxiety / Ourness, taken from their forthcoming EP, Campus, out October 8th.
The song is a beautiful, upbeat, yet strong, lovesick sick track that makes for the perfect indie rock jam. The single shows the duo in lo-fi, the wind blowing through their hair, jamming out in the blazing, hot Australian sun.
“‘Without U’ is the yearning for that spesh person whilst cruising down the coast in the back of a convertible, grilling some grub on a George Foreman grill and cooling some cold ones. The winds in your hair and the suns going down on the horizon but what’s the point in having fun without a loved one?”
Royel Otis is comes from the self-proclaimed “young scoundrels” duo of Otis Pavlovic and Royel Maddell. The duo was born on the coastline of the Australia’s famous Bondi Beach, which of course, influences their sound.
The duo recently signed to imprints House Anxiety / Ourness, who between them, have introduced the world to King Krule, Genesis Owusu, and Courtney Barnett.
