Two Bright Lakes is proud to bring you the debut single Sushi from art/pop trio Otouto (Hazel & Martha Brown, Kishore Ryan (Kid Sam, Seagull)). This is a sneak preview from the brilliant debut Otouto LP released in early 2010.
Sushi is full of summery piano hooks and harmonies that are countered by peppery percussion and dissonant guitar work. It’s pop music with bite. Whether playing warm warped vocal notes through a sampled keyboard or hitting a banjo with a drumstick, this trio’s take on pop music is fantastically unique. Vocal harmonies created by the sisters cause beautiful juxtapositions with the dissonant guitar work and frenetic percussion and beats. Lyrically, Otouto make songs with small and abstract pictures from daily existence. The pictures are both punctured and highlighted by their constantly unfolding foundation: pots and pans percussion, baritone guitar, Farfisa and homemade keyboards.
