RY X’s vocal performance in Shortline is nothing short of spectacular (h/t E.M.K). Somber and sweet, he descends into a mournful puddle of salty tears.
So, a pairing with ODESZA makes sense. It’s melodrama paired with heartbreak. A tune so lofty, so aery, that it expands into your subconscious almost immediately.
Horns blast. There’s a tickling drum track. It’s so crisp, it’s cinematic. We wonder why ODESZA released it on Spotify instead of a Christopher Nolan trailer.
