From Seattle, ODESZA is production duo Harrison Mills (Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches). Less than two years ago the two met as college seniors at Western Washington University, and quickly began to merge their unique electronic styles. In 2012 Odesza self-released their debut entitled “Summer’s Gone” which quickly grew them an audience, and last summer they released the beautiful “My Friends Never Die” plus a free downloadable remix of the entire EP. Together the pair enjoy playing around with surprise samples of indie music like Goyte‘s “Somebody That I Used to Know” for example in Odesza’s song “Without You,” and mixing it into their own creation featuring futuristic melodies of dreamy vocals, amplified synths, crashing drums, and warped basslines.
Please enjoy and listen below to Odesza’s latest “My Friends Never Die”, it was definitely a special favorite of 2013.
