Callum Afcouliotis (aka COTIS) has returned with new music, and he's back in his sweet spot with the newly released single "Girls from the North."

The velvet new track is a preview of the 21-year-old Canadian artist's upcoming RECKLESS project, a nine-track EP coming on July 14, which is said to chronicle the up-and-comer's continuing journey as he pursues a career in music while balancing personal responsibilities and still expressing his own freedom.

"RECKLESS is a process I’m still in," he says. "Just like not giving a fuck freeing myself from the prison my mind has created for itself—because that’s when I’m truly happiest [and] is when I feel free."
