Bay Area by way of Toronto artist ODIE (currently a student in San Diego) is a vocalist who blends his Nigerian roots with his contemporary influences (Coldplay, Kid Cudi) to create elegant, cross-genre anthems. His singles “Faith,” “Little Lies,” and “Trance Dance” display tremendous versatility and have earned him co-signs across both Apple Music and Spotify, making him an artist to watch this year. A couple of weekends ago, OVO Sound radio played his last single, “North Face.”
Analogue, ODIE’s debut effort, is a fully-formed effort for the 21-year-old artist. Alternating soft singing and percussive rhyming throughout, Analogue is a diverse and warm listening experience, equally suited to background listening or headphones absorption. Dropping April 6, Analogue boasts singles “Little Lies,” “Faith,” “North Face,” and “Night Terrific!,” each song showcasing a different aspect of the youngster’s prodigious talent.
