Oddysseys

There’s no such thing as taking it easy when it comes to Oddysseys. The Chicago-based duo, led by Christian Treon and Paul DiRico, has always operated under a strong DIY ethos and work ethic. The band has forged their own organic growth in the underground music scene, leaving their impression on basements, warehouses, and legendary venues across the U.S. and Canada, offering dynamic performances that take their audience on a journey through a sonically diverse discography - leaving plenty of room for moshers, dancers, and arm-crossers alike. The band waits for no one and takes matters into their own hands, typically writing, recording, booking, and promoting their vision themselves. With comparisons made to the likes of The Cure, New Order, and The Stone Roses, Oddysseys is post-punk at its finest, with a sound that traverses genres and pushes boundaries established by the innovators of the late '70s movement. A working-class band through and through, Oddysseys are a multimedia force that is determined to plow forward, delivering their music as the most genuine and authentic versions of themselves. Their latest single, "Enough", is the band’s first release since June of 2022. “Enough” ushers in the band’s next era and paves the path for a hyper-productive 2023, as they are set to release their next single on May 1 and announce two upcoming North American tours.

 

 

 

there’s no such thing as taking it easy when it comes to Oddysseys. we’re a chicago-based post-punk band that’s always operated under a strong DIY ethos and work ethic. over the last bunch of years we’ve forged our own organic growth in the underground music scene, leaving our impression on basements, warehouses, and legendary venues across the U.S. and Canada, offering dynamic performances that take audiences on a journey through our sonically diverse discography - leaving plenty of room for all of you moshers, dancers, and arm-crossers alike. we don’t have time to wait for anyone and we take matters into our own hands, typically writing, recording, booking, and promoting ourselves. we’ve been called “a working class band through and through”, and a “multimedia force that is determined to move up, delivering [our] music as the most genuine and authentic versions of [ourselves]” (V13), from making music to making our videos to making our zines to designing flyers and merch, we’re hard at work to create and make the world a little easier to understand, for everyone. the only people we’re interested in leaving out are those who block the way for others… so are you in?
