Of Note: ‘Say My Name’ and ‘Sun Models’ by ODESZA
‘Say My Name’ and ‘Sun Models’
Formed in 2012 and hailing from Seattle, ODESZA is an electronic duo consisting of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. Their debut album, ‘Summers Gone’, was released to universal critical acclaim in the underground electronic scene.
Their second full-length. ‘In Return’, came out in September of 2014, with of its tracks: ‘Say My Name’ (feat. Zyra) and ‘Sun Models’ (feat. Madelyn) - have been buzzing like crazy in the back of my brain.
While they adhere (somewhat) to traditional song structure, their songs actually strike me more as modern sound collages; clicking and bleeping their way into one’s subconscious.
They are also sought after remixers. A recent example, Zhu’s ‘Faded’ went to the top spot on the club play charts.
