ODESZA today have announced the Flaws in Our Design collaborative EP with Yellow House (Cape Town-based songwriter/producer/instrumentalist Emile van Dango) that will drop on July 21 via Foreign Family Collective/Ninja Tune.
The ‘Flaws in Our Design’ EP will also be available on clear sky blue vinyl Sept 29. A limited edition cassette housed in a printed o-card sleeve will also be offered only via ODESZA’s online store.
ODESZA & Yellow House are teasing the upcoming dreamy EP with first single “Heavier”, out now. The song captures the forthcoming EP’s transformative amalgamation of ODESZA’s epic, symphonic compositions and Yellow House’s psychedelic alterna-folk.
Of “Heavier”, Emile van Dango said that the track was “the idea that sparked the entire collaboration 5 years ago. From the jump, it had that unmistakable energy of having discovered something special. It captures the exact moment our two worlds met.”
Heavier was a collaboration that started 5 years ago,” said ODESZA’s Harrison Mills & Clayton Knight. “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.”
