Odessa’s “I Will Be There” Drops




Today, ODESSA reveals the music video for her buzzing single “I Will Be There” on VEVO. The single entered the Top 25 Alternative Rock Singles today.

In the video, the California songbird brings “I Will Be There” to life vividly on screen. It’s a smoky cinematic piece that mirrors the track’s palpable emotion and undeniable spirit within the performance. The visuals itself evoke hazy film noir but with a striking hushed color palette. It’s truly one-of-a-kind.

In addition to receiving high-profile syncs on Fox’s new comedy-drama Red Band Society and this year’s premiere of Grey’s Anatomy, “I Will Be There” serves as the lead-off single to the artist’s critically applauded Odessa EP [Chop Shop/Republic Records]—available now digitally. Recently, Paste interviewed her as part of an in-depth and revealing feature. The tastemaker even proclaimed her, “Best of What’s Next.”

ODESSA just wrapped a string of dates alongside LP, and she’s currently on the road with folk luminary Brett Dennen. Later this month she will be playing two special shows at CMJ Music Marathon in New York.

Odessa EP features the engaging and entrancing single “I Will Be There”. Projecting an artful story through blissful guitars and endearing vocals, the track continues to amass buzz for the artist. Produced by Jacquire King [Tom Waits, Kings Of Leon], the four-song EP welcomes everyone into ODESSA’s world.

The New York Times also recently profiled her in its “Style Magazine Online”. They described “I Will Be There” perfectly calling it “a plaintive love song with a lilting melody”. Check out the full feature here. Nylon also extolled her writing, “What do you get when you take the soulfulness of Lana Del Rey, the angelic, lilting chorus of Ellie Goulding, and the atmospheric hum-along melodies of Polica? Add a dash of shimmery production, and the result is the new single from ODESSA.”
