For the first time ever, ODESZA’s live set fan-favourite – Loyal has been released on all streaming platforms and digital stores (via Foreign Family Collective / Ninja Tune).
Originally debuted during the duo’s 2015 Coachella live set, “Loyal” has achieved a cult following among ODESZA fans who have speculated the name of the song and its origin, and have traded bootleg recordings around the Internet for years. The song was featured last night on Zane Lowe’s ‘World Record’ on Apple Music’s Beats 1 and used by Apple to launch their latest iPhone and Apple Watch product lines.
ODESZA’s latest album “A Moment Apart” – released almost a year ago to the day – has been streamed over 300 million times to date, earning them 2 GRAMMY nominations, a #3 spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart, seen them as the highest billed act of Coachella’s Sunday lineup following Eminem, and won praise from the likes of NME, Nylon, DJ Mag, NPR, Wonderland and many more. Featuring collaborations with Regina Spektor, Leon Bridges and RY X, it was accompanied by a string of high-profile remixes from artists such as Tycho, Groove Armada and Flight Facilities, and followed on from the release of ‘Light’ – a collaboration with Little Dragon (announced via Pitchfork) – and an exclusive instrumental version of their song ‘How Did I Get Here’ which was included on Ólafur Arnalds “Late Night Tales” compilation.
Since the release of their breakthrough 2014 album “In Return”, ODESZA have continued their impressive rise in the UK, playing headline shows at iconic London venues such as KOKO, Troxy and The Forum – they will play O2 Academy Brixton on 24th January 2019 – with radio support across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Beats 1 from the likes of Benji B, Pete Tong, Huw Stephens, and Phil Taggart.
