I came across ODESZA through my girlfriend, who sent me a link to this very moving video shortly after we met. I loved the ODESZA track featured in it and went in search of more, finding that there was plenty.
I came across this track, Kusanagi, via Song Exploder. It’s podcast where musicians talk about their music, stripping down songs to the individual vocal and instrumental tracks while talking about their creative processes. It’s one of my favourite podcasts and I find it very inspiring (and funny) to hear about the different methods people and bands have for developing their work.
I think Kusanagi is a gorgeous track — for me, it perfectly captures the feeling of peaceful summer afternoons. There’s no official video, but this fan made one is about as close to perfect as you can get.
