Two Bright Lakes will probably one day sign an act I’m not interested in but today is not that day. After seeing pop duo (or sometimes more) Otouto perform around Melbourne a few times I have to say I’m intrigued. They’ve got enough quirkiness without being annoying, and seem to know the magic behind writing a nifty indie pop  song.

The opening guitar line in their new single “Sushi”, sounds like something that would fit on one of the original Contra games’ soundtracks. It’s all midi; quick, spiky and catchy. Lyrically, there’s more to it than you would think on first listen. It’s not all about men eating sushi that looks like moustaches. Pots and pans drumming and some cute girl breathy vocals fit easily with the thought out guitar riffs. Otouto aren’t afraid to push the edges of the traditional pop song and it’s refreshing seeing them poke around and try new things within a four minute single.

Watch the video clip for lessons on how to stalk people in a cute and fun way!

    This band’s getting a lot of play at 2SER at the moment.

    I need to give the EP a listen methinks.
