Odette Returns With New Single "Collide"
20-year-old Sydney-based singer songwriter Odette returns with new single Collide, the follow up to her spectacular debut single Watch Me Read You.

Co-written with Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine / Halsey / Låpsley), Collide is a stunningly simple piano driven song with a mesmerising rhythm. The accompanying video was shot in Melbourne by Claudia Dalimore (Her Sound, Her Story / 360).

Discussing the single, Odette says,
This song was written around the same time as Watch Me Read You. It's a very personal song written for someone I was involved with at the time. It's about a yearning for a connection that ultimately doesn't exist.

I had some songs prepared for a studio session but the night before I couldn't shake this intense feeling. So I stayed up really late and ended up writing Collide on my Grandad’s little keyboard, in a tiny apartment in Fulham where I was staying with my dad. I brought it into the studio the next day and Charlie and I workshopped it and brought it to life. Initially it was just a big cluster of my emotions at the time but I’m really happy with the way it’s turned out!”

Odette will head out on the road in February 2018 for shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Alongside WATCH ME READ YOU and COLLIDE, Odette and her band will be presenting other cuts from her forthcoming album. Her debut live performance at Big Sound, Australia’s premier showcase event for new talent, in September attracted high praise with Red Bull and Forte Magazine placing her in their Top 10 Artists to Watch. These shows, her first as a headline act will provide the perfect intimate atmosphere to get acquainted with Odette and her amazing music.
