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', 'Treat Everybody with Respect' and 'Certain People, Certain Words' to be featured on the debut LP 'Forgiveness and War' scheduled for release in early 2019.

Fans of recent Arctic Monkeys are going to find something to love in this new one from Odin. Washy guitar parts sing through the background underneath that gentle croon.

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