Seattle electronic duo ODESZA have released their latest track ‘Higher Ground’, featuring vocals by Naomi Wild.
It’s a sweeping, ethereal track with African-inspired percussion, and it definitely has a slight Lion King vibe. Wild’s vocals soar over it, as she asks for a stronger love.
‘Higher Ground’ was leaked online, forcing the duo to release it early, much to the delight of their fans.
ODESZA’s Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight said in a statement, “‘Higher Ground’ came together in a special way for us. We were on a writing trip out in Lake Chelan, Washington when we first heard Naomi’s voice. We started adding rhythm and chords and everything just fell into place. It was one of those rare moments where the song felt like it wrote itself. This is one of our favorite tracks off the album.”
After being quiet on the release front for the past couple of years, ODESZA have been building serious hype lately; releasing four buzzworthy singles since April.
Their upcoming album ‘A Moment Apart’ comes out on September 8. Listen to ‘Higher Ground’ below:
