Odwalla 1221 (LA) -
ODWALLA1221 is Chloe Maratta and Flannery Silva, a musical duo formed in 2013 in Baltimore, MD. After spending two years playing shows throughout the country and recording three albums, the two moved to Los Angeles in 2015 where they continue to play live shows and tour the U.S. Their discography includes: Future Butterfly in 2014 on D.A. Spunt Company (No Age's Dean Spunt's label), Lily 23 in 2014 on VR, Earth Flirt in 2015 on Ooga Booga, and most recently, Fawns Are Dirty / Purr Hi in 2016 on Thunderzone w/ a B-Side remix by Lil Ugly Mane.
Odwalla1221's sound is built from a shared language library of samples, looping vocals, and electronic drums. Part collage band, Odwalla pieces together amorphous textures, feedback loops, obscure samples and dissonance to create a raw and guttural energy in the music. At the heart of the duo is Chloe & Flannery's friendship, which translates through the duo to create intimate and charged lyrics to their songs - or, if you look at them another way, poems to the music.
