ODESZA have digitally released their ‘Flaws in Our Design’ collaborative EP with Yellow House (Cape Town-based songwriter/producer/instrumentalist Emile van Dango), via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune. A dreamy, transformative amalgamation of ODESZA’s epic, symphonic compositions and Yellow House’s psychedelic alterna-folk, ‘Flaws in Our Design’ is yet another example of the dexterity of ODESZA’s talents & the endlessness of their creative vision.
The ‘Flaws in Our Design’ EP, out on vinyl September 29, is available for pre-order everywhere now on 140g Clear Sky-Blue Vinyl, housed in yellow dust jacket inside a 12” old school uncoated sleeve. A limited-edition cassette encased in a printed o-card sleeve will also be offered exclusively via ODESZA’s online store.
Of the new EP, ODESZA’s Harrison Mills & Clayton Knight shared that “We discovered Emile/Yellow House on SoundCloud and were immediately drawn to his voice and delivery. After finding success working on a few demos we flew him over from South Africa to work with us in our Seattle studio. From the jump, the music had that unmistakable energy of having discovered something special. We found ourselves drawn to a unique blend of electronic production and Emile’s incredible ability to create nostalgic melodies and storytelling lyrics. From there we went about creating a number of tracks and exploring various different combinations of the two worlds.”
