Matching punk with digital production, the pair’s barbed sound slices into expectations to unleash possibilities.
New album ‘Now Is A Long Time’ lands on March 19th, and it finds the duo spinning old influences in a fresh way.
Otzeki’s new single ‘Familiar Feeling’ is out now, and it was actually prompted by a live set from modular synth band Atom, but re-incorporates an alt-rock element.
Singer Mike Sharp on the song: “Whilst producing the track on the train, I accidentally left the mic on my laptop on and heard this kid and his mum laughing with each other through my headphones.. it felt like a part of the track already so when I noticed, I pressed record and let it provide an ambience throughout.”
“The vocal was taken from a completely different alt-rock track that we’d made years ago for our first album but never got released. That song was about seeing and holding a loved one after being away from each other for what felt like a lifetime.”
