Odesza’s performance at RF16 was a welcome surprise for me, about which I wrote the following at the time:
All though the duo had already made their appearance in my playlists before the festival, I had absolutely not expected their performance to be as vibrant as it was. It wasn’t just the fact that they were switching back and forth from drum kit to mixing board that made it entertaining, both to the eye as to the ear. It was also the colors and lighting they were using on the very cool cube shaped Apollo stage. It was truly mesmerizing.
Their best know song back then (and probably still so now) was Say my name:
They’ve been on fire ever since, winning over hearts of dance lovers all over the world.
At least as good is their more recent song Higher Ground:
They’ve outgrown the Apollo stage (all though the lighting features there are truly awesome) and will be performing at the Arena at 21:00 on Friday 06-07-2018.
If you aren’t sure yet if you want to put Odesza on your RF18 schedule, let Sandy from Grimy Goods give you that last little push:
Bringing their highly theatrical and meticulously crafted live show to a sold-out crowd at the Fox Theater in Pomona in between weekends at Coachella, ODESZA utilized every second of their set to hypnotize the crowd into dancing.
A drumline, horn section, guitarist, and guest vocalist Naomi Wild lent themselves in the creation of a sonic vibe that was truly cinematic. The set was a solid blend of old and new songs expertly reworked and mixed to keep everything fresh. Every detail, from the transitions to the lighting cues, was flawlessly executed.
If ODESZA is ever putting on a show even remotely close to you, go.
