Otouto were a Melbourne-based band that was centred on the music of singer and songwriter Hazel Brown with the help of Kishore Ryan (Kid Sam, Seagull) on drums/percussion and Hazel’s sister Martha Brown on vocals and keys.

Hazel Brown released her debut LP Rivers and Veins (produced by Nick Huggins) in 2006 and the ensuing shows saw her come together with Martha and Kishore as her band. Subsequently new material developed with the influence and direction of all three, with the band evolving to become Otouto in 2009. The band released a single, Sushi, in late 2009. 2010 saw the release of their only album, Pip, via Two Bright Lakes. The tracks “Astronauts,” “Twelve Ten” and “W. Hilliar” were released as promotional singles; and a video was made for “W. Hilliar.”

As of 2012, the band is inactive. Hazel has returned to work as the head of Two Bright Lakes, while Martha began performing under the moniker bAnoffee. Since the split of Otouto, Ryan has performed with bands such as Where Were You at Lunch and Ghost Gums.
