Odonis Odonis – “New Obsession” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Miles Bowe | February 3, 2014 - 11:25 am

Along with other Toronto bands such as Greys, Absolutely Free, and PUP, Odonis Odonis have earned some wider attention in the last year. Today they release the Cam Tomsett-directed video for “New Obsession,” the first single off their upcoming album Hard Boiled, Soft Boiled. The first half of the record is heavy and industrial, much like the first half of this video is deeply disturbing (and potentially upsetting to some); but as the twist makes things a little more lighthearted, the “soft boiled” second half of the album is lush and sweet. Watch below and check out their upcoming tour dates.
