ODESZA and Leon Bridges talk inspiration for ‘Across The Room’ in new video
ODESZA has released a behind the scenes video illustrating the decisive events and artistic process that led to video accompaniment to their collaborative single with Leon Bridges, “Across The Room.” The breezy piano ballad, sung by Bridges, was released on ODESZA’s newest album A Moment Apart.
According to the video, Bridges had been a “dream collab” for the ODESZA boys for quite some time. Conversely, Bridges admits he had not heard of the duo prior to their reaching out to him; though later in the video he satisfactorily reports they are “the coolest cats” he has worked with thus far in his career.
Both ODESZA and Bridges emphasize the creative energy discernible between them in their first meeting, which incited the eight hour studio session resulting in “Across The Room.”
