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)’
“We were really blown away by Dan’s work for our “It’s Only” music video a few years ago. When it came time to find a director for “Line Of Sight” we wanted someone who could represent the subtle sadness of the track yet pair it with feelings of hope and wonder,” says Knight and Mills. “We loved Dan’s sense of imagination and idea of telling a story about friendship through a sci-fi lens.”
“The track is so big and open it just felt like it was tailor made for putting a story under it. I focused on trying to convey something that was serious with a little melancholy but would ultimately be about hope and the human spirit to adapt and survive,” says director Daniel Brown. “In many ways I like to think of it like a parable with science fiction twist but at the core it’s an adventure story, a kid lost in the jungle trying to live another day where he gets help from a robot instead of a pack of wolves.”
Billboard described ‘Line Of Sight’ as “seriously cinematic,” and Vice Thump said it’s “a meltingly wistful slow-burner, built around a singalong hook.”
‘Line of Sight’ appears on ODESZA’s upcoming album A Moment Apart (out Sep 8 on Pod/Inertia Music/Rhythmethod), which has received early praise from Pitchfork, Complex, Billboard, Consequence of Sound, and Thump who call the record “electronic epic.”
ODESZA embarks on a global tour later this year, which has already sold out in numerous markets, and hits Australia and New Zealand just one week after A Moment Apart’s release.
