Introducing Odesza to the A&R Report. I saw this prolific duo out of Seatle perform at the Canadian Music Week last week in Toronto and they definitely caught a lot of people’s attention. The place was packed and the duo delivered a solid dj set.
In 2012, Seattle production duo ODESZA began as a recording project between Harrison Mills (aka Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) after graduating from Western Washington University. Their first release, Summer’s Gone, was a mixture of dreamy, sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping bass lines. Two tracks from Summer’s Gone, “How Did I Get Here” and “iPlayYouListen,” reached #1 on the Hype Machine Popular chart, cementing the duo as a force in the underground electronic community.
2013 saw the release of the My Friends Never Die EP with three of the five tracks hitting #1 on Hype Machine. In 2014 the duo toured with big names such as Bonobo and Pretty Lights last winter. To date, ODESZA has over 4.7 million streams on SoundCloud, a number that is sure to grow after the duo tours this Winter and Spring along with numerous Summer festivals.
