Sydney’s Royel Otis, announce their debut album titled, PRATTS & PAIN due on February 9, 2024. Additionally, the duo share their latest single & music video, “Fried Rice.”

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dan Carey, PRATTS & PAIN is the first jewel in the crown for Otis Pavlovic and Royel Maddell. An album named after the South London pub that sits around the corner from Carey’s famed home studio, the duo often finished lyrics and made sonic directions over a pint on a Pratts & Payne bar stool. Their resulting efforts swing between melodic, pop-inspired indie and woozy psych that never stays to one lane. Handbraking towards psychedelic weirdness and dissonant noise, Royel Otis have no issue keeping all who listen on their toes. After the release of three world building EPs, PRATTS & PAIN unites the record for their next chapter, adventures abound with no limits.

Today’s single is the second to feature on PRATTS & PAIN following the year’s earlier release, “Adored.” Thoughtful craftsmanship with a tongue-in-cheek twist, “Fried Rice” is a signature Royel Otis dish served piping hot. As rattled guitars jangle to a driving rhythm, the drawl of Otis enters to soothing effect, ready for a long summer’s drive singalong.
