After more than two years, Odesza have finally returned with new tracks. "Line of Sight" featuring WYNNE and Mansionair is a breezy feel-good number, but it's "Late Night" that's getting me excited.
The all-instrumental number is interesting and remarkably deep, with a wide scope of sounds, rhythms and melodies intertwining throughout, creating a roving sonic universe in a constant state of flux. From pulsating beats to tinny melodies, sparkly, starry synths to a low-slung, distorted bass, this has all the makings of a late-night banger begging for repeated spins.
On "Late Night" it seems the Seattle pair of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight are mastering the difficult art of extending a sound that became so immediately recognisable, neither straying too far, nor sounding too alike.
Welcome back, Odesza. I'm looking forward to hearing what else you've got in store.
