Oh Odessa

Oh Odessa

 New York City, New York, USA
BandRockSinger/Songwriter

A rock band that stays fresh by infusing the vocal stylings of Feist, drawing on influences from Death Cab and Radiohead, and being generally in love with Tim Burton.

Biography

Drawing influences from musical (St. Vincent, Death Cab, Radiohead) as well as non-musical (Tim Burton, Ayn Rand, Jack Kerouac) sources, Oh Odessa tells their stories with such conviction that you can't help but relate to them. They gracefully walk the line between timeless and in the spirit of the times and incredibly balance the prettiness of haunting vocals with the energy of a rock band. Their songs are invariably exactly what they need to be, and will stay on your iPod because there will be times when this music will be exactly what you'll need to hear.

"Jeni Magana’s voice is one that I could listen to all day and never, ever tire of. I find myself playing her songs over and over again just to hum along."

Lyrics

The World (Doesn't know)

Written By: Jeni Magana

Don't tell me I'm sleeping, I'm dreaming
but i must be doing it well
Because nobody can tell

These places, I made them
I'm tracing the lines that keep you from me
In reality

But I can move mountains here if I want to
And nobody argues
Because nobody can hear it

Yeah the world doesn't know what the world doesn't know
That it lives in my mind and so now I have total control
And nobody's aware and so they don't find it strange
Every cell in your body belongs to the thought in my brain

The sky's on fire tonight
And it looks just like it would seem
If we were living a dream

Because here you are standing,
our bodies are white by light of the moon
But envy makes us green

Yeah but in this world you won't turn away
no in this world you're gonna stay here with me
For as long as I please

Because the world doesn't know what the world doesn't know
That it lives in my mind and so now I have total control
And nobody's aware and so they don't find it strange
Every cell in your body belongs to the thought in my brain
