8 PM – Doors
9 PM – Show
After forming in 2019 and drip-feeding music into the world ever since, Royel Otis continue their rise to the top. Recently, they were nominated as Breakthrough Artist for the 2023 ARIA Awards, the recognition following a sold-out multiple-date national tour, a debut performance at Splendour in the Grass, and a rapturous sold out UK and European tour, including performances at Leeds and Reading Festival, Electric Picnic, Pukkelpop, End of the Road and more, all achieved in the first half of 2023 – and in support of their third EP, Sofa Kings. From cleaning up ‘Ones to Watch’ lists by the likes of Matt Wilkinson at Apple Music 1, NME, and the Daily Telegraph, breaking into the US Alternative radio chart top 40, to earning Spotify’s RADAR Artist recognition, and being featured in Vogue and GQ, Royel Otis only continue their ascending trajectory.
GIRL AND GIRL
Sub Pop’s latest signing is Girl and Girl: lead singer/songwriter Kai James and his Aunty Liss (Melissa James) on drums, supported by Jayden Williams on guitar and Fraser Bell on bass. The four-piece garage rock outfit from Queensland has a kinship that shines through in their music and in their electric live shows – Kai’s magnetism backed by Liss’ 37 years of drumming experience. With infectious hooks and surprising emotional intensity, Girl and Girl is an undeniably good time.
