“‘Line of Sight’ embodies everything fans have always loved about ODESZA”
Overnight, Australian fan favourite and Seattle natives ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) released their first new music in over a year and a half. Seattle radio stations KEXP and KNDD aired “Line of Sight” (feat. WYNNE and Mansionair) as well as announced the duo’s upcoming hometown headlining festival performance at Bumbershoot. ODESZA then released a second surprise track only hours later, “Late Night”, via BBC Radio 1‘s Huw Stephens.
Recorded between Seattle, Los Angeles and Sydney “Line of Sight” is a mesmerising, uplifting track full of texture and intricacy aided by WYNNE’s lead vocal and backing vocals by Australia’s own Mansionair.
“Late Night” is a glittering, cosmically influenced instrumental jam, with a retro bass line, reverberating riff, and a Pacific Northwest feel (also recorded in Seattle).
“We hope both old and new fans will enjoy these as feel good summer songs” says Knight. “We’ve spent the past couple years constantly re-working our sound, and growing as musicians,” explains Mills of the duo’s recording process between the road and the studio, “this sound reflects us building a grander, more cinematic sound.“
Formed in 2012 after meeting at Western Washington University, Mills and Knight’s combination of airy dreaminess, with textured bass and live percussion has set them apart from the pack, with a craftsmanlike approach to their sound, building the beats from the ground up. ODESZA’s debut LP Summer’s Gone stood out in the world of electronic music, as a collection of songs not just of beats. Their latest album In Return earned praise from The FADER, Vice, Noisey and Complex among others, and was followed by a GRAMMY nomination, headline festival appearances and sold out tours across the globe and in Australia an ARIA accredited Gold Single for “Sun Models“. ODESZA were in Australia last year for the Groovin The Moo festival as well as their own national run of sold out headline dates that included three massive nights at TheMetro Theatre in Sydney.
