ODESZA Reveals Alien Ships, Robots, and Chess in New Music Video For “Line Of Sight”

ODESZA Reveals Alien Ships, Robots, and Chess in New Music Video For "Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)"

ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) has today unveiled their new music video for "Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)”, a stylish, visually striking sci-fi tale shot in Hawaii.

With its vivid juxtaposition of sci-fi elements strewn amidst a tropical paradise, "Line Of Sight" aligns ODESZA's epic, infectious tune with the story of an unlikely bond between a boy and a robot. Directed by Daniel Brown with live-action production company UNHEARD/OF, the young protagonist's ingenuity and sense of survival in the most isolated of sanctuaries pairs as a beautiful visual accompaniment to the already cinematic track.

“We were really blown away by Dan’s work for our “It's Only” music video a few years ago. When it came time to find a director for “Line Of Sight” we wanted someone who could represent the subtle sadness of the track yet pair it with feelings of hope and wonder," says Knight and Mills. "We loved Dan's sense of imagination and idea of telling a story about friendship through a sci-fi lens.”

“The track is so big and open it just felt like it was tailor made for putting a story under it. I focused on trying to convey something that was serious with a little melancholy but would ultimately be about hope and the human spirit to adapt and survive," says director Daniel Brown. "In many ways I like to think of it like a parable with a science fiction twist but at the core it's an adventure story, a kid lost in the jungle trying to live another day where he gets help from a robot instead of a pack of wolves.”

Billboard described "Line Of Sight" as "seriously cinematic," and Vice Thump said it's "a meltingly wistful slow-burner, built around a singalong hook."

"Line Of Sight" appears on ODESZA's upcoming album 'A Moment Apart' (out Sep. 8, Counter Records), which has received early praise from Pitchfork, Complex, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, and Thump, who call the record an "electronic epic." ODESZA embarks on a global tour later this year, which has already sold out in numerous markets. Pre-order ‘A Moment Apart’ at http://odesza.com.


Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight have earned a GRAMMY nomination and Gold singles in the U.S. and Australia while racking up 30 Hype Machine #1s, over half a billion combined Spotify and YouTube plays, and over one billion plays on Pandora. With two full-length albums to their name, the Seattle-based production duo creates atmospheric, cinematic music blurring genres and musical styles while incorporating live instrumentation into their performances. They recently sold out a two-night stint at Red Rocks (19k tickets) in under an hour, and have sold out every show in 2015 and 2016 while headlining festivals around the globe.
