ODESZA & Yellow House Announce Collaborative EP, Release Captivating New Single "Heavier"

ODESZA have announced the ‘Flaws in Our Design’ collaborative EP with singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Yellow House (AKA Emile van Dango) that will drop on July 21 via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune.

ODESZA & Yellow House are teasing the upcoming dreamy EP with first single “Heavier”, which captures the forthcoming EP’s transformative amalgamation of ODESZA’s epic, symphonic compositions and Yellow House’s psychedelic alterna-folk.

Of “Heavier”, Emile van Dango said that the track was “the idea that sparked the entire collaboration 5 years ago. From the jump, it had that unmistakable energy of having discovered something special. It captures the exact moment our two worlds met.”
“'Heavier' was a collaboration that started 5 years ago,” said ODESZA’s Harrison Mills & Clayton Knight. “We discovered Emile/Yellow House on SoundCloud and were immediately drawn to his voice and delivery. After finding success working on a few demos we flew him over from South Africa to work with us in our Seattle studio. From the jump, the music had that unmistakable energy of having discovered something special.

We found ourselves drawn to a unique blend of electronic production and Emile’s incredible ability to create nostalgic melodies and storytelling lyrics. From there we went about creating a number of tracks and exploring various different combinations of the two worlds.”

The announcement and single release come amidst an already eventful 2023 for ODESZA. The duo attended this year’s GRAMMY Awards in support of their nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album for their ‘The Last Goodbye’ EP, which recently saw a deluxe edition release. They have also recently announced the second leg of “The Last Goodbye Tour” kicking off this summer and featuring support from Bob Moses, Bonobo (DJ set), Big Boi, TOKiMONSTA, Drama, Neil Frances, QRTR & Olan, and The Midnight.

Also For the first time ever, fans will be able to witness the awe-inspiring ODESZA live show as an immersive concert film with 'ODESZA: The Last Goodbye Cinematic Experience' presented in cinemas worldwide including Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong for one night only on Friday, July 7. 

'ODESZA: The Last Goodbye Cinematic Experience' shows one of electronic music’s most important modern-day innovators as you’ve never seen them before, providing an intimate look into the process of creating the group’s wildly successful and record-setting return to the touring stage with “The Last Goodbye Tour.”
