In September 2014, ODESZA put out their album In Return. It debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic charts, and spent 13 weeks in the top 10. But the song “Kusanagi” isn’t a dance track. It slows down the pace of the album, and in this episode, Clayton Knight and Harrison Mills of ODESZA explain why. They tell the story of how they made the track, along with their friend and collaborator who they named the song after, Sean Kusanagi. This episode was recorded live at Moogfest in Durham, North Carolina.
