Bio

Royel Otis are embarking on the journey. Their debut EP ‘Campus’ promises the kind of sonic adventure that many band’s spend a career trying to capture. The bond between the two 20-somethings reveals a kindship running far deeper than Otis and Royel’s nascent friendship, evoking influences that resonate with a power that’s at once both timeless and vital. “When we started the project we wanted to capture that feeling of driving down the coast with the window down and the sun’s out,” recalls frontman Otis of their formative mission statement. “A lot of my favourite songs have that nostalgic vibe to them and we wanted to conjure that feeling where memories from your childhood flood back to you.”

This one's got all the familiarity from bands I grew up and fell in love with. You had me locked in on first listen. I love the build into the song, the colour, personality and every little moment.

Am I alone in hearing a touch of The Drums in here? There's that crisp, nostalgic surf vibe going on - which I love. Royel Otis have two winners in two releases.
