Seattle-based Odesza looking forward to Grammy Awards and a busy 2018
With its latest two Grammy nominations in tow, the Seattle-based electronic duo Odesza has planted its flag firmly in mainstream-music culture. But what that means for the group — and whether or not the consequences are completely welcome — is yet to be seen.
For a duo that’s historically spent much of its time between funky backstage green rooms and worn-down basements, the wash of newfound glitz and glamour might not be as comfortable as it sounds to other established or aspiring bands. But Odesza will be right in the thick of it come Jan. 28 during the 60th Grammy Awards.
“It is overwhelming,” said Harrison Mills, one half of Odesza. “It’s such a clear thing that people notice and feel proud about. But it’s not really in our bubble.”
