Toronto trio Odonis Odonis revealed the latest single, "Insect," from their forthcoming EPReaction out April 12 via Felte (pre-order). The song which premiered today at Post-Punk will be available on all streaming services this Friday and can also be shared at YouTube. About the song Post-Punk says, "The band have been performing 'Insect' over the course of the last year, honing in on the track's sleazy, groove-driven nature. As always, Odonis Odonis strike the perfect balance between moody psychedelia and heavy blasts of industrial noise, and 'Insect' channels both the avant-ghetto grooves of mid-era Cabaret Voltaire and the sheer terror of Liars' best material over the course of three intensely captivating minutes. 'Insect' has been a live favorite for some time now, with fans across the board clamoring for its release."
Odonis Odonis have announced a North American tour in support of Reaction which will kick off on April 4 at The Garrison in Toronto. The upcoming tour will include shows in Chicago, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Seattle, Los Angeles and more. All upcoming shows are listed below.
Odonis Odonis merges pulsing electronics and foreboding textures to create a palpable sense of doom. Drawing on EBM and industrial influences, Reaction finds the band further refining the sound they carved out on 2017's No Pop LP. Noisy synths saturate the sonic space, cut with sharp, bruising rhythms. The band offers up club fare with the throbbing four-on-the-floor "Insect" lashed with whip-cracking drum breaks. A heavy atmosphere layered with taunting vocal provocations creep throughout the four-song EP, and by the final track "Rip," howling screams propel a crushing climax.
The EP was written while the band was touring to support No Pop, and the evolution between the two releases is seamless. During this time, the band perfected the songs by testing them out live, chiseling away to the core of each piece. Recording also took place simultaneously while writing, and much of what made the cut is comprised of or structured around first takes. Produced, mixed, and mastered by the band themselves, Reaction is a concise, focused collection of songs that perfectly captures the band's unrestrained energy and spontaneity.
