Review | ODESZA – A Moment Apart
Their album begins with the song Intro, which feels like it’s been taken straight from 2001: A Space Odyssey, followed by their featured piece A Moment Apart that opens with an epic symphonic melody straight from a John Williams score. Regina Spektor’s collaboration on Just a Memory highlights ODESZA’s signature indie electronic sound and their collaboration with Leon Bridges on Across the Room beautifully combines the sounds of R&B and electropop to create a fantastic tribute to Motown. The album concludes with use of an 808 snare to back Sasha Sloan’s powerful collaboration on Falls followed by two songs Show Me and the RY X feature Corners of the Earth that call Jai Wolf’s name for epic remix potential. If you’re looking for a powerful electronic album that uses innovative approaches to trance and house to move forward the electropop genre, ODESZA’s new album will certainly make an impact.
