It’s about time that electronic music got big in Seattle. Leading this charge of electronic wonders is ODESZA, a duo (Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight) who recently headlined Showbox at the Market for two hugely sold-out dates. I don’t know if the expression “blissed out” is no longer trendy. I don’t care. Because that is what ODESZA’s music does to you.
I caught night two of their evenings at the Showbox, and neither musician showed any sign of fatigue (okay, why should they? but you never know what will happen playing two home nights in a row). There had to be extra stress when playing for people you know. But I could feel the energy and love in that room as the audience danced and images splashed onto the screen behind ODESZA. This duo knows how to blend all their songs oh so well, and I love them.
ODESZA just completed a European tour, and are set for what is basically a world tour next year. You need to experience this band.
