Otis I reminds us of the beauty of life and this world we share with a gorgeously genuine, heartfelt and poetic new single.
Featuring a contemporary soundscape that’s fairly simple in set-up – making subtle use of modern rhythms, production traits, and elements of dance-hall, Gospel and even trap – Life is cinematic to a degree, but for the most part stands with absolute strength thanks to the character and drive of its leading voice.
Otis I guides us with quiet confidence, with breathy and soulful authenticity. His lyrics pour through almost like a compelling, inspiring freestyle thanks to these in-the-moment qualities.
His dedication to the performance represents the concept well, prompting appreciation of the world, of life. And at the same time, the song’s hook softly but surely weaves its way into your consciousness, making Life not only an uplifting indie single but a catchy, mainstream-ready one, too.
Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come.
‘We’re all so beautiful in our own creative genes’
