We here at KUTX aren’t shy about our adoration for Austin songwriter Taylor Wilkins. And why would we be? Between his two semi-eponymous projects – the hard rockin’ Otis the Destroyer and the soft poppin’ Otis Wilkins, Taylor doesn’t really miss. We’re still patiently holding out for a full record from the latter, but Wilkins’ “quality over quantity approach” has us pretty sated for the time being.
That said, you can expect a new slew of singles from Otis Wilkins in the near future. Each one features our fearless Destroyer’s falsetto vocals, carefully-chosen key chords, and crafty guitar work. The latest track, “Eat Yer Phone” came out at the top of July, but its body-positive pop is best enjoyed in a cameo-covered video that just dropped today. So instead of doom scrolling or fueling epidermal insecurities, see if you can count how many local musicians you recognize in the visual feast that is “Eat Yer Phone“.
