Odesza

^^

When: Saturday 16th September
Where: Enmore Theatre

ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) are one of the most celebrated groups in electronic music, winning over fans online and at their consistently sold-out live shows. Today, they have announced their new 16-track album A Moment Apart, out Friday September 8 on Pod viaInertia Music, and a world tour to immediately follow. A Moment Apart represents ODESZA’s growth, delivering a more mature sound through weighted atmospheres, shimmering synth lines and familiar feelings of nostalgia, optimism and hope. The album's featured guests include Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor, and Australian singer/songwriter RY X, creating an eclectic mix that showcases ODESZA's dynamic range. Album closer “Corners Of The Earth (feat. RY X)”, released today, builds upon a chilling vocal performance by RY X through thunderous low-end and swirling synthesizers, horns and choir that grow and expand throughout the song. The track coalesces into a cinematic, emotional climax in a pure ODESZA style. Also released today, “Meridian”, is a trademark ODESZA song, filled with rhythmic, pulsating drums and powerful vocals in a bed of lush synths and percussive punch. “Meridian” has a touch more grit and represents a subtle tone shift for the duo as reflected in the cover art designed by Mills and Michelle Gadeken. Four tracks from A Moment Apart including the previously released singles “Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)” and “Late Night” can be streamed here. ODESZA embarks on a world tour this September headlining their biggest venues to date with The Kite String Tangle and Running Touch on the support lineup.

"We'll be celebrating our 25th anniversary in Australia, and while Australian tours are always  ragers, we will be bringing our full stage of antics along for the first time. Add a massive catalog of material to choose from and it's almost an instant good time. We're coming to your shores to party, live recklessly, have a few pies, nurse a few hangovers, and make our 25th anniversary tour one to remember (or not remember)."- Vinnie Fiorello, Less Than Jake. Less Than Jake will be joined by legendary Australian quartet, Bodyjar, reformed for their first shows since seminal album How It Works was revived for a huge sold out tour in 2015.
