2017 finds ODESZA’s Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight on the precipice of a musical takeover with their third full-length album ‘A Moment Apart.’ The relentless touring that followed sophomore release ‘In Return’ gave way to prolific studio sessions, and the result is a 16-track album representative of ODESZA’s growth and maturity: weighted atmospheres, shimmering synth lines and familiar feelings of nostalgia, optimism and hope.
The advance releases from the album give a glimpse into ODESZA’s dynamic range: from glittering and summery on “Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)” to cinematic and emotional on “Corners Of The Earth (feat. RY X)”. Instrumental tracks “Late Night” and “Meridian” bear trademark ODESZA synth and drum work, with the latter ushering in a subtle tone shift into slightly grittier territory.
As with their previous studio output, the album’s introspective nature belies the raw energy of the duo’s consistently sold-out live shows. New music, live instrumentation and all-new stage production are in store for the 2017 A Moment Apart Tour, the first incarnation of which debuted to 19,000 fans over two nights in May at the hallowed Red Rocks Amphitheater.
New York-based musical duo consisting of
Sophie Hawley-Weld and
Philadelphia producer Tyler Minford, aka Louis Futon, has steadily carved out his own lane in the electronic music scene over the past two years. In that short time, his remixes and singles have garnered over fifty million streams online, with his biggest single to date “Wasted On You” being released through ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective.
Simultaneously, Futon has set his sites beyond the confines of the electronic scene as his productions have reached into the worlds of hip-hop and r&b as well. Not only have his official remixes of artists like Anderson .Paak and Goldlink found major success, but collaborations with r&b leaning artists like RKCB have resulted in some of his most dynamic work yet.
His array of talents is already paying dividends as he’s not only toured with ODESZA in the past year, but in 2017, has secured a mostly sold out headlining spring tour alongside appearances at festival staples like Splash House, CRSSD and Okeechobee. Those prime spots are no surprise as Futon has captivated fans with a unique live show that features the multi-instrumentalist playing out originals and remixes alike.
With so much accomplished and in store, the forthcoming year is undoubtedly slated to be Futon’s most successful yet.
