ODESZA Reveal New Music Video For ‘Line Of Sight’ (feat. WYNNE & MANSIONAIR)
Touring September 2017:
Thursday September 14 – Great Hall, Auckland NZ
ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) has today unveiled their new music video for ‘Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)’, a stylish, visually striking sci-fi tale shot in Hawaii.
With it’s vivid juxtaposition of sci-fi elements strewn amidst a tropical paradise, ‘Line Of Sight’ aligns ODESZA’s epic, infectious tune with the story of an unlikely bond between a boy and a robot. Directed by Daniel Brown with live-action production company UNHEARD/OF, the young protagonist’s ingenuity and sense of survival in the most isolated of sanctuaries pairs a beautiful visual accompaniment to the already cinematic track.
Check out the video for ODESZA’s “euphoric new single” (NPR Music) ‘Line Of Sight (feat WYNNE & Mansionair)’

The title Villains isn’t a political statement. It has nothing to do with Trump or any of that shit. It’s simply 1) a word that looks fantastic and 2) a comment on the three versions of every scenario: yours, mine and what actually happened… Everyone needs someone or something to rail against—their villain—same as it ever was. You can’t control that. The only thing you can really control is when you let go.”—Joshua Homme
