‘I Wanna Dance With You’ is a sweet slice of indie pop, that will satisfy fans of, according to NME, MGMT and Wet Leg. The track is coloured with bright jangling guitars and striking wistful strings combining to create an overarching sense of nostalgia. The track arrives with yet another stunning new music video from the duo. Packed with youthful nostalgia, the clip follows a young boy as he nervously prepares for an upcoming dance party with his crush.

Childhood friends and now songwriting dream team Royel Otis (aka Otis Pavlovic and Royel Maddell)’s debut EP, Campus, leaned into the band’s organic, nostalgic sound, bringing a swooning psychedelic edge to proceedings for extra-added blissfulness. With the dream pop flow fully nailed, the pair wanted to get a little looser, a little edgier. That’s just what they did on the latest EP, Bar n Grill, which saw them swapping synths for guitars and making everything that much grittier, while still showcasing their knack for an exceptional pop melody and a killer catchy chorus.
