Toronto’s underground staple Odonis Odonis broke out in 2011 with their scrappy, blown out debut, Hollandaze. The dynamic band instantly began turning heads with their haze filled live shows and unique combination of influences. On their Polaris Prize nominated follow up Hard Boiled Soft Boiled, Odonis Odonis masterfully crafted a sonically divergent record that pushed them into groundbreaking territory.
OO’s post-apocalyptic anthems construct stark soundscapes and saturate them with layer upon layer of industrial grime. They do this with an enhanced sense of melody and willingness to push the boundaries of traditional pop structure.
Dean Tzenos’ vocals sit clear and upfront, delivered with a foreboding intensity that matches each song’s dystopian reality. Denholm Whale’s bass lays demolition charges nimbly sidestepped by Jarod Gibson’s futurist rhythms.
On Post Plague, Odonis Odonis force us to realize what we are – vulnerable, frantic creatures yearning for authenticity.
