It's been a meteoric rise for Seattle duo ODESZA. With the release of their sophomore album, In Return, on Counter Records (a Ninja Tune imprint), producers Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight have become overnight sensations, selling out shows around the world, including two nights at The Showbox.

KEXP is proud to present the video premiere of this "In Return: Home" documentary of the band. Scenes from those two sold out Showbox shows are captured in the clip, and you truly get a sense of the mania currently surrounding these two Western Washington University grads. You also get a behind-the-scenes look at how they manage to stay grounded in the midst of all the madness.

The duo have just wrapped up their European tour with Slow Magic, but are barely taking a break before launching into another North American tour, with a side trip for their first-ever headlining tour to Australia and New Zealand. For a band who reportedly took their name from a sunken ship, we predict continued smooth sailing for ODESZA.

Check out the documentary "In Return: Home" below, and watch their Audioasis session from last year on the KEXP Blog.

Song Premiere: Lost Lander - Walking on a Wire

When Lost Lander's Matt Sheehy sings, "It feels like we've been walking on wire," we can relate. It's a tightrope act with the band Lost Lander, a tension created by catchy loops, and layered lyrics, either of which are all too easy to get lost in. "Hold onto that thread," Sheehy advises, and he's …
