ODESZA To Conclude Most Successful 2015 Tour This Weekend in Los Angeles
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to catch the guys first-hand during their In Return World Tour - though we have heard the rumors. At least the former will be true until this coming Monday in Los Angeles (December 14) at the Shrine Expo Hall, where ODESZA will conclude the most successful tour in electronic music this year - and Elektro has been invited to take part in the historic moment.
The evening will come after a three-day stop at the Shrine Expo Hall, that had initially been announced as two until Los Angeles proved to want and deserve more of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. Each show has already been sold out for months, and this mere fact is what makes the In Return World Tour so significant in the electronic music community today. It's something that builds this booming industry and somehow separates them from everyone else, all in one.
Along the lines of this notion, Mills say of their live performances: “We related more to album-based artists and the singer-songwriter stuff that was around us growing up. And that’s influenced how we approach the shows, by adding a lot of live elements with a guitarist and our own drumming and electronic drumming. EDM used to mean you’re a guy with a laptop on stage. When we play live against artists in that realm, we do like the energy that EDM creates, but we go about it in a different way.” And the success of their careers as ODESZA in just three years - in just the past year - proves that what they're doing on stage (and in the studio) is resonating with this growing EDM community.
