Toronto trio Odonis Odonis shared their latest single The Rip, which is lifted from their ‘Reaction’ EP. Take a listen to the track via YouTube below.
Odonis Odonis combines 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 The Rip, howling screams propel a crushing climax.
The EP was written while the band was touring to support ‘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.
