On September 22, Amoeba had several young music lovers in their CD aisles jumping to the beats of the electronic duo, Odesza. The American duo flooded the record store with head-bobbing and heart-pounding sounds in celebration of their new album, In Return.
The evening called for an intimate, live show with a small crowd, considering the space of the venue. Despite that, the duo was welcomed on stage with an energy that surpassed the walls of the record store.
Their playlist included songs like, “iPlayYouListen,” “How Did I Get Here,” from their 2012 album Summer’s Gone, and “Sun Models” and “Say My Name” from their newest album. Many jumped and swung their hands in the air, others focused on capturing it all for social media, and some climbed aisles to get a closer glimpse of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, the unstoppable duo.
According to Amoeba Music’s website, the Seattle based producers are “accruing listens online, selling out shows and packing out festival crowds.”
Though mostly known within the underground, electronic community, Odesza has figures as big as 7.5 million plays on Spotify, 15 million SoundCloud streams, averaging 500,000 weekly, and a growing number of subscribers on Youtube. There is no doubt the duo will stay in your playlists, minds, and dancing feet.
