Royel Otis, have kicked off the year with new single “Velvet.” The track is off their debut album, PRATTS & PAIN available February 16th via OURNESS. The track follows previous singles “Adored”, “Fried Rice” and “Heading For The Door.” The duo chant in unison across “Velvet”, a foot-stomping jangle of chugging guitars and keys that is a cathartic release for accepting one’s shortcomings. On “Velvet,” Royel Otis says: “‘Velvet’ is the evolution of yet another failed endeavor.”

PRATTS & PAIN was Produced by Dan Carey ( Fontaines D.C., Squid). The duo comprised of Otis Pavlovic and Royel Maddell, create melodic, pop-inspired indie and woozy psych.
