Indie elec­tronic duo Odesza, hail­ing from the US city of Seat­tle, gained quick pop­u­lar­ity through their sel­f­re­leased de­but al­bum Sum­mer’s Gone in 2012, but it was 2014’s In Re­turn which at­tracted a wider au­di­ence, top­ping the Bill­board dance/elec­tronic charts. With its big pro­duc­tion sound, third al­bum A Mo­ment Apart marks an­other step for­ward. The tracks fea­ture a host of guest artists, in­clud­ing young Los An­ge­les singer-song­writer Naomi Wild who adds light pop vo­cals to the ra­dio-friendly ‘Higher Ground’. Soul singer Leon Bridges adds his smooth sound to ‘Across The Room’. Slower still is ‘Just A Mem­ory’ with songstress Regina Spek­tor adding vo­cals to the emo­tive bal­lad. Be­tween the vo­cal tracks Odesza do their thing on at­mo­spheric and mostly in­stru­men­tal pieces.
