Austin Allen is Otonomi. This dreampop/shoegaze project from Arizona is all about feel good music. Otonomi gets lo-fi and raw with “Go Stay Safe”. It’s indie rock meets folk acoustic, stripped acoustic and vocals but with undeniable underlying ambience. The vocals are quite washed out and blend with the instrumentation as if they’re another similar instrument. The harmonies are beautiful and his tone is buttery smooth.
“This is a love song for the earth”
The peaceful song makes me want to sing around a campfire and be appreciate for our planet. Nice job Otonomi. By the looks of his Soundcloud, Austin was on a 3 year hiatus before dropping two tracks this past month. We hope he keeps up the vibes.
