Odesza discover post-apocalyptic companionship in new video for ‘Line of Sight’
Counter Records

Seattle electronic duo known as Odesza continue to build up to the Sept. 8 release of their upcoming album, A Moment Apart. The group shared the new music video for one of the album’s lead singles with “Line of Sight” on Monday morning, and covers a theme that most Americans are actively dreading these days, the apocalypse.

As seen in the video above, a young boy and a lonely robot find companionship in what has become a barren, post-humanity world, which looks to be run by artificial intelligence. The adventure that follows includes some fresh, locally-sourced rotisserie chicken, some late-night chess and epic laser gun battles. 

According to the song’s premiere, the video’s narrative was inspired by classic adventure tales including The Jungle Book and Robinson Crusoe.

"We loved that [director Dan Brown] used such a far-out setting to communicate such relevant, relatable emotions," said Sean Kusanagi, the group's creative director. "Ultimately, the song is about having to find your way in a scary world."

When it comes to the new material to be heard on their upcoming album, Kusanagi also added, “They're not the post-college kids anymore ... They've been touring non-stop for the past four years, meeting new people and growing a lot. It represents a maturing."

The band recently announced their upcoming world tour in support of A Moment Apart, which kicks off on Oct. 20 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Tickets to select shows on the upcoming tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
