Odonis Odonis – New split 12”, video

Originally a solo project for prolific songwriter/ bandleader Dean Tzenos, Odonis Odonis has only recently become a live band project, playing their first live shows in May and picking up heat as one of the buzz bands of Toronto’s NXNE festival.

Compiled from a wealth of material written and home-recorded between January 2009 and September 2010, Dean recorded virtually all of forthcoming debut album Hollandaze – a grimy, gum-splattered ménage of surf-gaze, punk and lo-fi – alone in a tiny home studio, writing two or three songs a day.

Tzenos’ passion to produce was born of juxtaposition, binding the orderly with the anarchic, the sacred with the destructive, the playful with the terrifying.  Wrapping every song with deep sea reverb and cold fingertips, Odonis Odonis distills the vitals of pop and experimentation.

Molded at a young age by the sounds of indie, new wave and industrial mix-tapes passed on by Dean’s elder sisters, Odonis Odonis harkens to The Jesus & Mary Chain, Pixies, Big Black and The Cure.  Like a good post-modernist, however, these influences merely colour, but do not define Odonis Odonis.

Signing to FatCat Records last month, Odonis Odonis’ first release came in May with an ultra-limited edition 7″ single – ‘Busted Lip’ on Canadian label We Are Busy Bodies, followed swiftly in July by four tracks on a split 12″ (shared with Deerhunter side project, Lotus Plaza) on FatCat’s new sister label, Palmist.
