ODESZA Welcomes Leon Bridges, Naomi Wild & WYNNE, Thanks Seattle in Triumphant HomecomingThanks Seattle in Triumphant Kicks Off Release Week For New Album 'A Moment Apart' (Counter Records/Ninja Tune) out this Friday
The iconic, glimmering Space Needle served as a backdrop for ODESZA's masterful Sunday night headlining set closing Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival. Special guests Leon Bridges, WYNNE and Naomi Wild also took the stage to highlight their great new contributions to ODESZA'S forthcoming album A Moment Apart (out Sept. 8th on Counter Records, a Ninja Tune imprint).
The duo shouted gratitude to their loyal hometown fans as their encores capped a talent-packed festival of music featuring Lorde, Weezer, Solange, Spoon, Vince Staples, Gucci Mane and more.
Manning dual drum kits, ODESZA masterminds Clayton Knight and Harrison Mills conducted a 90-minute set that featured an intricate eight-piece drum line, horn section, visual light display, and the aforementioned guest appearances, performing recent multi-million streaming hits like "Line Of Sight," "Higher Ground" and "Late Night," alongside fan favorites "Say My Name" and "Sun Models." The performance was met with thunderous audience applause and displayed ODESZA's knack for combining arena-ready indie-electronic with organic instrumentation and classic songwriting.
