Published Apr 28, 2020ODESZA have announced their return with a new project called BRONSON, a collaboration between the duo and Australian producer Golden Features. The newly formed group will deliver their debut self-titled album on July 17 via Ninja Tune.
Today they've shared a pair of debut singles, "Heart Attack" featuring lau.ra and "Vaults." According to BRONSON, "Heart Attack" was the very first vocal track they worked on for the record.
"It was one of those ideas that came together really quickly and felt very natural while writing with lau.ra," they wrote in a statement. "Ultimately, it was a confluence between the two distinctive sounds of ODESZA and Golden Features. It served as a turning point in the writing process of the album and an inspiration for the other vocal tracks to come."
"Vaults," meanwhile, was one of the first instrumental tracks for the record.
It was one of the earlier instrumentals we completed and it acted as a cornerstone to the overall sound design and aesthetic of the album. The track really proved a departure from each artist's own respective styles and set a definitive change in direction for the BRONSON project. We knew we had something special here and it served as a guiding light for the rest of the record.
ODESZA's latest record was 2017's Time Apart, while Golden Features released Sect back in 2018.
