Why do we like this?

Odesza's highly anticipated debut album In Return dropped last week, and I haven't been able to stop listening to it. The Seattle duo have created this beautiful, blissful at times, refreshingly unique soundscape that carries throughout the 13-track album, while managing to avoid a single song sounding the same as the one before it.

All albums have stand-out singles, and many have less-exciting filler tracks. Then, you get albums with tracks that are so brilliant in their own subtle ways that you genuinely don't understand why everyone on earth doesn't love this track as much as you do.

For me, “White Lies Ft. Jenni Potts” is that one on In Return. I'm not sure what it is about this track – it's not the heaviest, nor the loudest, or even the most interesting. Starting with vocal chords before the trickling synth enters, the tone is immediately gorgeous. The beat is equal parts mellow and ready-for-a-dance, and the layers build upon each other to create a complete atmosphere which, while being obviously top heavy, doesn't stray from a deep bass beat.

Saving the best for last: that voice. Jenni Potts' vocals are almost impossibly sweet; so high, so divinely angelic. I love Odesza's use of female vocalists - it adds such a special tone to their brand of electronica, and this one really exemplifies that.

Easily in my top ten albums of 2014, I am so happy that Odesza exists.
