ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) is one of the most celebrated groups in electronic music, winning over fans online and at their consistently sold-out live shows. Today, they announced their new 16-track album ‘A Moment Apart’ out September 8 on Counter Records (a Ninja Tune imprint) 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 RY X, creating an eclectic mix that showcases ODESZA’s dynamic range. Full track list below.
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.
