Troy Samuela & Monsoonsiren

"Fiend" (Foreign Family Collective)

Contact Patrick Tilley about Troy Samuela & Monsoonsiren

ODESZA catapulted to the forefront of the electronic music scene in 2014 with the release of their new album, In Return (out now on Counter Records), and show no signs of slowing down. If anything, they’re speeding up. Although every show on their current U.S. headline tour has sold out in advance and they will perform at every major music festival this year, the duo looks to expand their influence in the electronic space with the announcement of Foreign Family Collective, an outlet for musicians and visual artists alike curated by ODESZA’s Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight.  Having flexed their A&R chops with the NO.SLEEP mixtape and party series, ODESZA will use their expert ear to launch the careers of their favorite up-and-coming artists.


The first Foreign Family Collective release is a huge R&B/electronic pop banger fromTroy Samuela and Monsoonsiren called “Fiend,” which was premiered earlier today via Complex. “Troy Samuela and Monsoonsiren are an unusual pairing for a track which is why this one is so unique,” explain ODESZA. “Troy Samuela’s synth work and heavy hip hop influence blend with Monsoonsiren’s hauntingly beautiful airy vocals in a way that compliment each other in an unexpected way.”  You may recognize Monsoonsiren as the singer on ODESZA’s hit single, “Memories That You Call”, while Troy Samuela recently produced a remix of ODESZA’s latest single, “All We Need,” and opened for ODESZA in New Zealand in January.


This is only the tip of the iceberg for the promising new label.
