ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective debuted ‘blush,’ the brand new EP From mai.la. The Nashville hailing electronic two-piece channel an immersive prog-pop style that draws on a multitude of influences. Making a stellar debut in 2016 with ‘Ready,’ they have spent the last year in LA making music alongside the likes of Jordan Reyes and Aaron Harmon.
mai.la summarise this personal project with fond nostalgia, saying: “blush’ is our time capsule. We made each of these tracks at such a specific time of our lives. There is no doubt that in 30 years, we’re going to listen to this EP and be transported to Tennessee roads and cicada songs. We’re going to remember the laughter, and the tears, the stress and the hugs. We’re going to remember 12-hour jam sessions and staying up until the sun rose, sleeping until 3pm, then doing it again. We weren’t thinking about putting it out, or where we’d be when we did, or how we’d feel about these songs. We weren’t thinking at all. It manifested, and now it’s here, and we will always be grateful for that. We hope that by listening, you get to see a little peek of that too.”
