Bio

"‘The Hard Way’ shows Odin Malchik as a force to be reckoned with, and the best is yet to come. Before you know it, his music will be the soundtrack of your summer." - BLITZ UNSW

The solo project of Ryan Johnson, Odin Malchik translates to 'One Boy' in the Nasdat language used in A Clockwork Orange. The name only seemed fitting for a psychedelic pop venture drenched in classic British influence. Jangly, airy riffs are layered under bright, lennonesque vocals, leaving plenty of space for the straight forward, introspective lyricism.

The 'Odin Malchik EP' shows a wide spectrum of styles from the bouncy, Britpop inspired 'Another Time' through to the dynamic, groove laden 'Put Me In'. A sign of the variety to be expected from what is to be a very prolific year.

Following the release of the EP comes singles 'The Hard Way' and 'Treat Everybody with Respect' to be featured on a debut LP which is currently in the works.

Some really nice moments in this. I'm a sucker for those jangly guitars.

Read the bio + reviews, can confirm the guitars are jangly. It reminds me of replacing the wooden and metal wind chimes quasi-hippies put up on their verandahs - but replace them with guitars.
