Odonis Odonis: Reaction
Toronto trio Odonis Odonis merges pulsing electronics andforeboding textures to create a palpable sense of doom.Drawing on EBM and industrial influences, Reaction finds theband further refining the sound they carved out on 2017's NoPop LP. Noisy synths saturate the sonic space, cut with sharp,bruising rhythms. The band offers up club fare with thethrobbing four-on-the-floor "Insect" lashed with whip-crackingdrum breaks. A heavy atmosphere layered with taunting vocalprovocations creep throughout the four-song EP, and by thefinal track "Rip," howling screams propel a crushing climax.The EP was written while the band was touring to support NoPop, and the evolution between the two releases is seamless.During this time, the band perfected the songs by testing themout live, chiseling away to the core of each piece. Recordingalso took place simultaneously while writing, and much of whatmade 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 perfectlycaptures the band's unrestrained energy and spontaneity.
