After forming in 2019 and drip-feeding music into the world ever since, Royel Otis continue their rise to the top. Recently, they were nominated as Breakthrough Artist for the 2023 ARIA Awards, the recognition following a sold-out multiple-date national tour, a debut performance at Splendour in the Grass, and a rapturous sold out UK and European tour, including performances at Leeds and Reading FestivalElectric PicnicPukkelpopEnd of the Road and more, all achieved in the first half of 2023 – and in support of their third EP, Sofa Kings. From cleaning up ‘Ones to Watch’ lists by the likes of Matt Wilkinson at Apple Music 1, NME, and the Daily Telegraph, breaking into the US Alternative radio chart top 40, to earning Spotify’s RADAR Artist recognition, and being featured in Vogue and GQ, Royel Otis only continue their ascending trajectory. 

Sofa King’s singles “Kool Aid”“Sofa King”“Going Kokomo” and “I Wanna Dance With You” were quick to receive international and local press adoration from Paper Mag, Purple Sneakers, NME, consistent airplay from BBC Radio 1Apple Music 1 and the status of Triple J’s #1 Most Played track. Produced by Chris Collins and Royel Otis, the EP delivered visceral stories and quick wit atop blissful guitar-fuzzed haze, landing in major playlists such as Ultimate IndieAll New IndieDOPAMINE and Today’s Indie Rock (including featuring on the cover). The record followed the band’s sophomore EP Bar ‘N Grill in 2022, which saw the pair grace the covers of global playlists including Indie Arrivals and Supersound, Apple Music’s Heaps Indie and more, amassing over 10 million streams, and garnered widespread playlisting support across Australian community radio, US college radio and BBC Radio 6. The band earned a slot in this year’s triple j’s Hottest 200 for “Oysters In My Pocket”. Meanwhile, earlier this year, they joined Groovin the Moo’s 2023 touring lineup and as supports on alt-j’s Australian tour. 

They are ready to end 2023 in sizzling style, as they sling “Fried Rice” ahead of their debut album, PRATTS & PAIN arriving early next year.
