Record Label: Foreign Family Collective
Seattle-based production duo ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) began their meteoric journey in 2012 with ‘Summer’s Gone’. The following spring, they released the five-song EP ‘My Friends Never Die’ - a harder-hitting complement to the lush sounds of their debut - and began to build their reputation as a ground-breaking live act. In 2014, they signed to Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records to release ‘In Return’, featuring two gold-certified singles “Say My Name” and “Sun Models”, and 2017’s ‘A Moment Apart’, which would go on to garner two GRAMMY nominations. The popularity of ODESZA’s most recent albums has brought with it a new audience that is just now discovering ‘Summer’s Gone’ and ‘My Friends Never Die’. Old and new fans keep these albums in heavy rotation on digital streaming platforms, and songs like “How Did I Get Here” (‘Summer’s Gone’) and “My Friends Never Die” continue to outpace newer album cuts. Six years in, ODESZA has graduated from small clubs to main stage performances at Coachella and Lollapalooza, sold-out shows at Staples Center (LA) and Barclays Center (NYC), and sold out multi-night runs at Red Rocks, Wamu Theater in Seattle and The Greek Theatre in Berkeley, among many others. Mills and Knight have also proved themselves as tastemakers with the launch of Foreign Family Collective, an outlet for musicians and visual artists now in its third year.
