Odesza, stylized as ODESZA is an American electronic music duo from Seattle consisting of Harrison
Mills and Clayton Knight. The group was formed in 2012 shortly before Mills and Knight graduated
from Western Washington University.
They got their name from Harrison Mills' uncle's ship, which sank. Only his uncle and one other crew mate survived.
They also claim that the name is a variant of "Odessa", however that spelling was already in use by another band.
Therefore they settled on replacing one "s" with a "z"
