After recently playing a couple of shows with Sons of Zion, Whangarei locals OTIUM have released a small 2-track EP titled You. The 2 tracks are With You and For You.
With You is a fun and upbeat track with a a range of different musical elements that make you want to move and sing-a-long.
Comparatively, For You slows it down , being more of a ballad, but with a bit of a beat and you can still move a long to it. The vocals in both are smooth and each chorus and verse flows well together. If you are a fan of reggae, pop, R&B etc then I recommend checking them out.
After seeing them open for Sons of Zion I definitely recommend experiencing them live. Their music is really brought to life on the stage, where their presence is electric and you would think they’ve been doing it for a long time. On top of releasing this EP they have also announced the Late Night Hype Tour so everyone can have the chance to see them live again!
Otium have previously used Late Night Hype as an opportunity to showcase other local talent and their tour is no exception! At every stop, Otium are set to be joined by some of New Zealand’s best musicians promising fans a night of extremely high quality homegrown music.
