ODESZA added to 2018 Walmart AMP lineup


ODESZA will perform at the Walmart AMP on Wednesday, Oct. 3.

The group returns with its third album, A Moment Apart, which marks the next step in the evolution of production duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, who have been creating music together since their college days at Western Washington University.

The duo followed their 2012 debut Summer’s Gone with 2014’s In Return, which debuted at the top of Billboard’s Dance/Electronic charts and featured gold single “Say My Name.” A remix of the track by RAC was later nominated for a Grammy in 2016.

From the AMP:

In the course of that five-year span, they’ve gone from ground zero to selling out large arenas, all without the benefit of mainstream press or radio airplay. They’ve built their appeal through word of mouth and streaming, plus a unique live presentation featuring an 11-piece ensemble that includes a horn section and a marching-band drumline.

A Moment Apart moves into expanded sonic and psychic territory, seamlessly balancing organic and layered synthetic sounds, creating a dreamy, often stirring hybrid that owes as much to Motown and ‘60s surf music as it does to electronic forebears such as Four Tet, M83, Gorillaz and Bonobo.
