Okay okay so I was just about to finish posting for this morning, but wait, what’s this? …a damn nice slice of funky, fluffy loveliness! This will be ODESZA’s first release from their forthcoming album, ‘In Return’ (out Sept. 8th on Counter Records (a Ninja Tune imprint)). Well, this has got me excited already!
Not my usual thing, being pretty Poppy, I guess, but this grabbed my attention and being indirectly from Ninja Tunes, it’s hardly surprising; they really can’t do any wrong by me!
ODESZA – Say My Name (feat. Zyra)
Back to the song, a really nice upbeat feeling to this bouncy Pop banger and the vocals supplied by Zyra are uplifting and affecting. Great use of build up and layering in this tune to produce a rising feeling of excitement. I can see this being a real festival anthem, like the song says, ‘I wanna dance, I wanna dance’
Having just smashed a tour of the US, they’re soon to be in Europe for the ‘Set it Off’ tour.
