The collaborative efforts of BeachesBeaches and Catacombkid have catapulted into gold. The producer duo, who go by the name ODESZA, have been making waves with all the kids. The stats are impressive – streamed from SoundCloud over 16 million times, over 7.5 million times on Spotify and selling out live shows. In this case two heads put together has been better than one. So ODESZA’s new album ‘In Return’, which is to be released September 8th, is one to be celebrated.
There is an array of uplifting, pop-infused songs making up this magnetic album. Charged with lush, haunting synths and buzzing melodies, their sound is sure to alter your mood. Madelyn Grant features on their current hit Sun Models, and she performs on the album alongside Py, Zyra and Shy Girls. In the works is a show to accompany this phenomenal album.
Perth-based promoters announced the first lineup for Circo Festival II, featuring Bloc Party‘s Kele Okereke turned his hand to releasing excellent jacking house music at the start of this year, and he’ll be bringing his new sounds next month for Perth’s taste-making Circo Festival. Kele will bring his solo deep house project over to the East Coast, playing tunes from his newest release Heartbreaker and his debut LP The Boxer, waving bye-bye to distorted guitar riffs and saying hello to electronica. But be sure to hold out for some old Bloc Party favourites thrown in for kicks.
Also they have already announced a set of official Circo sideshows featuring a DJ set from the Bloc Party frontman, acclaimed Seattle-based electronic duo Odesza, and Sydney EDM star Hayden James, that are set to take over venues in both Sydney and Melbourne this June.
Odesza will be making their first Australian visit, bringing their unique blend of sample-based beats and sun-kissed melodies from their debut Summer’s Gone. While, Sydney’s sultriest, Hayden James, will round out the bill, wrapping up his national tour alongside dance music poster boys RÜFÜS.
