In 2009, Odawas lighted amongst the oceanic synths and shimmering ambiance of The Blue Depths. Five years on, 2014 marks the return of our psychonauts, with their new LP, Reflections of a Pink Laser, released on Parisian boutique label, Bookmaker Records. Once again casting their gaze into the cosmos, the present finds Odawas crafting songs of the future to deal with the past. Drawing from the later novels of science-fiction visionary Philip K. Dick, songwriter Michael James Tapscott adapts campfire stories of personal narrative and vicarious observation for the frozen flames of Ichthys. Across these interstellar structures of human plight, producer and arranger Isaac Edwards paints galactic swaths of cinematic scope and delves deeper into the sonority of the organic and synthetic, from the dim-lit ache of resignation in “Home,” through the epiphanic vastness of “What If Our World is Their Heaven?” With Reflections of a Pink Laser, Odawas extends a stigmatic hand and with a flash of the eyes invites you, dear listener, on an epic journey from innerspace to the outer limits.
