Odesza are two, clean-cut white guys from Seattle using silver Macs and Akai something somethings with many knobs and buttons to create very cheerful, danceable nice-guy-tronica with gauzy atmospheres and tectonic subsubsub bass pressure. Their favorite bands are probably New Order and Pet Shop Boys.
Cameraman just blew our minds.
A large audience massed before the Main Stage and danced with mild abandon. Some young couples groped. Odesza’s conflict-free, night-bus-esque club fodder went down very well with the crowd, including a late-50s-looking King County sheriff who was standing outside the fence near High Voltage. All of Odesza’s music is free online, said the nice guy wearing the black shirt onstage.
