More about Odonis Odonis? Industrial surfgaze outfit Odonis Odonis is the brainchild of prolific polymath, Dean Tzenos. Having spent 2012 supporting their debut LP, ‘Hollandaze,’ with luminaries such as Ty Segall, Fucked Up and Mogwai; Odonis Odonis now return with the ‘Better’ EP (April 16, 2013).
If “Hollandaze” was a campy b-horror movie, than ‘Better’ plays out more like a true cult horror classic. Mixing violent guitar stabs over moody drums and bass, ‘Better’ evokes a sense of looming dread that’s nipping at your heels. The intensity is blindingly twisted. Unpredictable. And you’ll be gripping your seat until your heart comes to a full stop.
