About: With its latest full-length album, “A Moment Apart,” releasing later this year, Odesza will bring new music, live instrumentation and an all-new stage production to SlossFest. Odesza members Harrison Mills (aka CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (aka BeachesBeaches) began recording together after meeting at Western Washington University. They quickly carved out a distinctive, heady sound: glitched-out vocals, soaring, visceral melody and ear-gripping drums. The duo has quickly amassed a devoted fan base, having earned 21 Hype Machine No. 1s and more than 66 million SoundCloud streams. Boasting a sold-out tour, Odesza’s live performances have entertained audiences at top music festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.

You can follow Odezsa on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.


Discography: “Summer’s Gone,” “In Return,” “A Moment Apart” (to release in September).
