Electronic duo ODESZA have rushed out the release of new single Higher Ground (feat. Naomi Wild) after it was leaked. The song is off their highly anticipated third album, A Moment Apart, to be released Friday September. The track shows off the ODESZA signature of dynamic chord progressions that open into sweeping cinematic soundscapes, punctuated by ecstatic, thumping percussion.
Higher Ground came together in a special way for us, say Mills and Knight. We were on a writing trip out in Lake Chelan, WA when we first heard Naomi’s voice. We started adding rhythm and chords and everything just fell into place. It was one of those rare moments where the song felt like it wrote itself. This is one of our favourite tracks off the album and we’re excited to share it with you. A Moment Apart represents ODESZA’s growth, delivering a more mature sound through weighted atmospheres, shimmering synth lines and familiar feelings of nostalgia, optimism and hope. Vocal performances include Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor and RY X, creating an eclectic mix and showcasing the dynamic range ODESZA is known for.
