Record Label: Counter Records
The indomitable ODESZA have owned summer 2015 drawing some of the largest crowds around at every major music festival including Coachella, Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, Governors Ball and Lollapalooza, where they recently performed with members of the Chicago Bulls’ drum line. With an enduring live performance and a break neck production schedule that has resulted in recent remixes for Hayden James and Emancipator, Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight continue to refine their craft and outshine their peers.
The genesis for “Light” begins in 2014. Little Dragon asked ODESZA to do a remix of a song off their last album, Nabuma Rubberband, but their label accidentally sent ODESZA the stems for a new song that was not on that album. In the midst of a sold out 2014 North American headline tour in support of In Return, ODESZA was too busy to complete a remix.
Months after the remix idea was shelved, ODESZA and Little Dragon played a co-headline show in Boston, inspiring an idea to write a new ODESZA track and build it around the Little Dragon vocal stem. Little Dragon’s distinct vocal and ODESZA’s expert production combine to create a late contender for song of the summer, “Light.”
