Kent Odessa – “Separate Lives”
The strongly melodic “Separate Lives” is a thoroughly successful new track from Kent Odessa, the Brookyln-based artist who impressed with tracks like “Radar Gaze” and “Gender Studies” in the past. On “Separate Lives” rhythmic reverberations in the intro are quickly accompanied by sharp, yearning vocals. Washes of synths thereafter construct an engrossing bridge, leading into the sensationally catchy “you do what you’re supposed to do / right on time, separate lives,” hook. Raycee Jones’ angelic vocals add an extra melodic dimension. “Separate Lives” is a consuming pop success that’s been on replay quite a bit for me.
