If you were one of the lucky ODESZA fans who saw the Seattle duo’s massive A Moment Apart tour, you already know the stunning audio-visual feats the ensemble is capable of. ODESZA stands before a giant screen that boasts some of the most realistic, seemingly three-dimensional imagery of any live act on the road. The duo is then joined by a spectacularly tight drum line, bringing new impact to each hit, new dynamic softness to each in between.
A Moment Apart was just that: a moment. So how did they manage to top themselves with an even more awe-inspiring headline set at Coachella? Special shout-outs are in order for ODESZA’s creative directors Sean Kusanagi and Luke Tanaka who help the team flesh out the production, step by step. Pillars, visual storylines and drones were employed to give Coachella the best ODESZA performance anyone has ever seen.
