TOTD: Odesza – “Light” Ft. Little Dragon
One duo that is currently on top of the world is Seattle-based beatsmiths, Odesza. Together, Clayton Knight and Harrison Mills combine to create one of the most innovative electronic music ensembles in the world. At the moment Odesza is touring around the country selling out shows everywhere they go. This weekend they will be in New York, slated for shows on Friday and Sunday after selling out their initial Thursday night show. In celebration of one of my favorite bands coming to my hometown, today’s track of the day is a salute to these west coast pioneers.
“Light“ features vocals from the positively hypnotizing Little Dragon and is the epitome of Odesza’s musical style. It is a massive tune full of gorgeous synth work and heartbreaking lyrics with mesmerizing composition. There are few artists out there who can even come close to the majestic qualities that Odesza consistently infuse their songs with. The perfect way to get you ready for the weekend, “Light” will have you floating on cloud nine all day. You can grab “Light” with the bonus version of Odesza’s sophomore album, In Return.
