Odette - Watch Me Read You

Introducing 19-year-old UK-born, Sydney-based singer/songwriter Odette, who after spending the last two years crafting her debut album has just unveiled its lead single called "Watch Me Read You", along with an accompanying music video directed by Josh Harris (Middle Kids, Gang Of Youths). "Watch Me Read You" is an absolute pop masterpiece that consists of pared-back arrangements, compelling and assertive vocals, and passionate lyrics. Completely in love with story-telling, Odette’s objective is very simple.

"I just want to communicate how intensely I see things, I suppose. Processing emotion is a common theme throughout a lot of my songs," explains Odette, "Music has been a way for me to discuss and kind of analyse emotions and things from a different perspective, rather than just feeling it."

Odette's songs are deeply personal and see her move from spoken word into warm, soulful vocals, with arrangements circling soul, jazz and pop. It’s no wonder she’s caught the eye of producers and songwriters including Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine, Ed Sheeran, Kaiser Chiefs), Jason Cox (Blur, Gorilliaz, Jamie T), Alex Hope (Troye Sivan, Broods) and Paul Mac (The Dissociatives, Silverchair), all of whom clamored to work with her over the past year and a half, alongside LA-based, Grammy nominated Damian Taylor (Bjork, The Prodigy, The Killers, UNKLE), who produced her forthcoming album.

"Watch Me Read You" is available now on iTunes.
