Toronto trio Odonis Odonis will release their ‘Reaction’ EP on April 12 via Felte (pre-order). The band has shared the first single Collector, which is lifted from the forthcoming EP. The track is available on all streaming services now, but you can take a listen via YouTube 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 their superb album ‘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.
