Watch our interview with Royel Otis below!

Sydney-based dream-pop duo Royel Otis have followed up their sophomore EP, with a brand new track, Kool Aid. The duo have also shared an official visual for the track, directed by Kyle Caulfield.

“If Bruce Lee and Springsteen had a baby, Kool Aid would be it. Called Bruce. Bruce Lee slicing the guitar Jeet Kune Do-style and a heartland rock type feel like from the boss himself. ‘Kool Aid’ is a slice of the moment after years of being smitten by the coolest girl on the street. She’s a little older and has all the rumours about her but for some reason she is entertained by you and wants to teach you new tricks.” the duo share of the track.

Royel Otis are set to kick off their UK tour this weekend, taking to the stage at Live at Leeds Festival. The run of shows will continue on to London, Manchester, Glasgow, and Cardiff, before the duo head to Antwerp, Paris and Amsterdam for further European performances.

The musical project of Pavlovic and Royel Maddell began upon the latter returning home after living in New York and finding himself working at a bar. Here, he had a chance encounter with Pavlovic who was fresh our of school. One night, Pavlovic showed Maddell his demos and the rest is history. Last year, the duo released their debut EP, Campus, which featured the singles Without U and Only One.

Kool Aid is out now!
