Soaring sounds flying high that’s fueled by trip-hop and ambience is what happens when producers Catacombkid and BeachesBeaches come together. Odesza broke on the scene with their first full length album, “Summer’s Gone,” in 2012. Packed with dream-pop goodness and a mixture of dreamy, sun trickled melodies, light vocals and crisp beats with large sweeping bass lines.
Odesza has been well received as they have already played transformational festivals such as What The Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, and Symbiosis Gathering. Gaining steam through these appearances, the pair has been featured on tour dates with names like Pretty lights, Michael Menert, and most recently, Emancipator.
Last year saw the release of the My Friends Never Die EP. A bright production that saw the group continuing to define their sound and included a wonderful, glitched-out version of Gotye’s “Someone That I Used to Know.”
With only a couple years under their belt, I can bet you will be stepping to these guys for years to come. When you see their name in a town or festival near you, be sure to make an effort to catch them live. Their brand of chill-step is sure to fill your ears with beauty and feet with motion.
