the grooves are straight from Studio's legacy but the guitars are very Cocteau Twins and all the sound collage stuff on eg "Fauna" is KLF/Avalanches/Air France material, thank you for bringing this into my life

i don’t normally like hype sheets but this one nails it

Luciano e Valerio, Giacomo e Michele: Odeon are the union of two couples of Roman brothers who are not easily defined.

Take the mellow melodies of Talk Talk and the celestial guitar riffs of Cocteau Twins bound together with some heavy Goblin-inspired bassline and you’ll be close to picturing Odeon’s signature sound. Drawing from '70 Italian B-Movies' soundtracks, psychedelic rock and early 80s new wave, and combining analog synths, dreamy guitars, melancholy vocoder and drum machine-driven percussion, Odeon put together a debut album that sounds fresh and classic at the same time.

Ethereal and mesmerizing, Galaxies is the perfect soundtrack for a sonic journey through dying stars and forbidden planets.

Only had time to listen to a couple of tracks but it reminded me quite a bit of Dif Juz

"Galaga" sounds like the midpoint between Studio's "Life's A Beach" and Chromatics' "Tick Of The Clock" and is soooo good
