Highest ever chart position for the Independent label Ninja Tune (via their Counter Records imprint)
ODESZA reaches a career milestone as A Moment Apart debuts at #3 on The Billboard 200, earning 62,742 equivalent album units and making them one of only a handful of electronic acts to feature in this year’s top three. A Moment Apart also marks ODESZA's second #1 debut on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Album chart, with five songs from the album landing on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, including current single "Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)". A Moment Apart debuts at No. 1 on the Nielsen SoundScan Current Physical Albums chart, placing ODESZA at #7 on the Billboard Artist 100. The album also charted at #2 in the UK Dance Top 40 and hit #1 on the iTunes Electronic album chart in over ten countries.
Heralded by Billboard as “the uplifting sort of magic the world can really use” and by Nylon as “simply put, transcendent,” A Moment Apart (Counter Records/Ninja Tune) is their highest-debuting album, which features Leon Bridges, Regina Spektor, RY X, WYNNE and Naomi Wild among others. Entirely self-produced by the duo and a testament to their fan base built on their touring and online presence, Pitchfork, Complex, Clash, DJ, and Evening Standard have also praised the album.
“The album’s really about coming full circle and finding balance in both the sadness and the beauty. The album’s about perspective, and it’s about changing your perspective and not looking at something just at surface level. If there’s a theme of the album, that’s it.” – Harrison Mills
“I think the name and the album itself are not so much about isolation as the internal energy, something that happens from within when you step back from everything." – Clayton Knight
ODESZA launched its 2017 A Moment Apart Tour with a triumphant hometown return to headline Bumbershoot earlier this month in Seattle. The tour, which takes the duo to nine countries on three continents, features a live band and stunning visuals. On September 29th, ODESZA will be bringing their breath-taking live show to a sold-out crowd at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town. Dates here: http://odesza.com/shows/
