2023 has been an amazing year for ODESZA fans. Not only have they been dropping new music left and right, but they just released another new single and compilation album. Rare.wavs (Vol 2) is the follow up from the first edition released in 2021, featuring new music from various artists on their Foreign Family Collective roster. However, this is the first time ODESZA included original music of their own.
ODESZA’s newest tune “In The Rain,” continues their foray into the house-forward beats found on their BRONSON album. Ethereal vocal chops dance over a vibrant synth melody while a driving bassline propels the track forward.
While the whole compilation album is stacked with some of our favorite names like TOKiMONSTA, pluko, and edapollo, our standouts include the chill liquid DnB track “Tratado” by German artist Parra for Cuva and the softly confident, anthemic “SWIM” by EVAN GIIA.
Here’s what ODESZA had to say about the compilation album and their contribution to it:
“We love the Rare.wavs project from Foreign Family Collective because it gives artists the chance to step outside of their comfort zone and try new directions, which may not work as part of a full record release of their own. [“In the Rain”] was written on the road while performing our The Last Goodbye Tour. We wanted to make something fun and high energy that would particularly work well in a live environment.”
