Odina

Performed in Sofar London and Madrid

Odina’s aesthetic is melancholic and sorrowful, yet brimming with warmth and delicacy. A project that began at a point of “exile” when moving to a different country -from sunny Catalonia to the rainy streets of London- Odina’s minimalist approach attracted widespread critical acclaim with debut EP 'Broken' and subsequent singles in 2017, drawing comparisons to Joanna Newsom and Bon Iver and landing her a slot at Primavera Sound. Recognised by critics as an artist to watch, to date Odina has received praise from Nylon, Dork, The Line of Best Fit, and Wonderland to name a few. 2020 saw the release of her debut album 'What I Never Told You', an album recorded following sessions in, respectively, Sjømannskirken (a Norwegian church in London), a box-size bedroom and her parents' basement. Confessional and more direct than ever in her debut full-lenght, she threads lap steel guitars and vocoder effects into a personal patchwork of sound in which emotion is key. Underneath Odina’s gentle exterior is a steely DIY attitude. She’s the creative force behind everything that she does, from writing and producing her music, to directing videos and bringing a strong visual identity to her soundscapes, everything she conjures up comes directly from her soul. To listen to her turning her experiences of love and young adulthood into art is to watch an artist growing in real time.
