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 surfgaze” 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 now have a new album out. ‘Post Plague’ is the 3rd album by this Canadian (Toronto) outfit. The album brings them into a new realm of industrial surf-gaze, the sound they are best known for since their Polaris Prize nominated sophomore album ‘Hard Boiled Soft Boiled’. Odonis Odonis is coming out strong with Post Plague, releasing 3 singles in a month. ‘Post Plague’ is being released by 3 record labels worldwide: FELTE (U.S), Telephone Explosion (CAN) and on cassette by Geertruida (NL).
Odonis Odonis’ latest epic, ‘Post Plague’, delivers a powerful blend of industrial, electronic and SciFi. OO’s 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.
