“I’ll never feel trust again.”
Canadian industrial-synth act Odonis Odonis hit the detonation plunger on their explosive visuals for Trust and In The Fire, from the upcoming album Spectrums.
The ongoing release project explores different meandering paths in the band’s palette of sound, at times sounding like Nitzer Ebb; at others like Revolting Cocks and NIN. Trust is in the former camp, a swirling nightmare of relentless existential queries and blistering dance beats. The song follows the March releases of Salesmen and Get Out, and Impossible in May.
“This project is the start of the third chapter of the band’s evolution,” says Tzenos. “I still feel like we have a lot more to explore musically and writing these songs lit the spark for a lot of new directions. The idea of doing something poppy is a stark contrast to our last record, but as long as the project remains fun and experimental it will keep growing. We’re more like the weird goth kids in the back of the club now.”
The album will be released digitally and on vinyl via Felte Records on the 15th of October, 2021.
Formed in 2010 by Dean Tzenos (Ten Kens), Jarod Gibson, and Denholm Whale, the Toronto music act debuted with the album Hollandaze in 2011. Their sound has evolved over the decade, originating with a more surf rock vibe, but later experimenting with ambience and a heavier industrial sound before 2016’s Post Plague, when they fully realized their transformation into darkwave.
Meandering past the usual repetition of industrial music, Odonis Odonis weave gold from straw with hard-punching lyrics and fierce electropunk fervour.
The wild visualizer video, directed by Adam Seward and Julianna Carlevaris and edited by Odonis Odonis, reflects this frenetic frenzy, with visions of clashing teeth, static and unsettling angles that disorient you. Will you ever feel trust again?
