After the launch of their debut EP Charade at Melbourne’s Revolver last month, electronic four-piece Otious have dropped another banger titled ‘Self Loathed‘, the fifth and final single off their EP.
The snap, crackle and pop of vinyl underlies the track, which is beautifully layered with a combination of urban synths and sounds of nature, giving the track an overall transfixing, ethereal vibe. Lead singer Jordan Walker’s vocals possess an understated, rich texture, only adding to the track’s tranquil effect.
It’s hard to really pin down a genre for these guys, as they more and more showcase just how good they are at moulding varied influences together, although they do describe their signature sound as “Otious Step”.
Whatever their genre, these guys are solid local talent, so do yourself a favour and give this track a listen!
