ODONIS ODONIS

Toronto trio Odonis Odonis merges pulsing electronics and foreboding textures to create a palpable sense of doom. Drawing on EBM and industrial influences, "Reaction" finds the band further refining the sound they carved out on 2017's "No Pop" LP. Noisy synths saturate the sonic space, cut with sharp, bruising rhythms. The band offers up club fare with the throbbing four-on-the-floor "Insect" lashed with whip-cracking drum breaks.

A heavy atmosphere layered with taunting vocal provocations creep throughout the four-song EP, and by the final track "Rip", howling screams propel a crushing climax. The EP was written while the band was touring to support "No Pop", and the evolution between the two releases is seamless. During this time, the band perfected the songs by testing them out live, chiseling away to the core of each piece. Recording also took place simultaneously while writing, and much of what made the cut is comprised of or structured around first takes. Produced, mixed, and mastered by the band themselves, Reaction is a concise, focused collection of songs that perfectly captures the band's unrestrained energy and spontaneity.


RIYL: D.A.F., Nine Inch Nails, HEALTH, Metz. Toronto underground staple Odonis Odonis broke out in 2011 with their scrappy, blown out debut, Hollandaze. The dynamic trio instantly began turning heads with their signature "industrial surf-gaze" sound.

On their Polaris Prize nominated follow up, Hard Boiled Soft Boiled, Odonis Odonis masterfully crafted a sonically divergent record that pushed their sound into new territory. Odonis Odonis' latest epic, Post Plague, delivers a powerful blend of industrial, electronic and Sci-Fi. Odonis Odonis' post--apocalyptic anthems construct scenes of sci-fi horror and saturate them with industrial strength synth beats. Dean Tzenos' vocals sit clear and upfront, delivered with a foreboding intensity accented by his synth motifs and soundscapes. Denholm Whale's carefully crafted bass figures / electronic percussions are strategically placed like demolition charges throughout the sonic foundations of each track that Jarod Gibson, like some futurist architect, constructs.

On Post Plague, Odonis Odonis delivers the kind of hypnotic, pulsing destruction that you can't wipe away. Post Plague inhabits that impending reality of synthetic experience which forces us to realize what we are: vulnerable, frantic creatures yearning for an authentic present / future. Jeff Goldblum, in the acclaimed motion picture The Fly, reminds us that we must take a “deep penetrating dive into the plasma pool,” and take stock of ourselves before we lose something profound. Something that may be necessary to ward off a pending anthropogenic apocalypse. Recognize and take pleasure in our fucked up place in time as we have so many new worlds possible at once.
