In this Dream Tour segment, the alternative RnB, Odette, reveals who she would want on her ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
Ok. So we’re talking about my dream tour here. This isn’t going to be a casual affair. I want the most chaotic people on earth by my side. However, first I want to let you all know where this show is taking place. Greenland, in the woods infamously known as the home of the wolf children. These, according to the myth, are children who were treated so badly that they ran away and were raised by wolves. Eventually, they grew up and returned to the town to seek their revenge on the ones who hurt them.
So, yes this show is for them.
First on my lineup would absolutely be Alice Glass. She embodies fierce passion and resilience. Her music is what I listen to when my senses are overloaded and I need something to match it and neutralize me. She’s unexpectedly cathartic. I’d recommend her song ‘Forgiveness’ which came out in 2017.
Second I would have The Presets. Kings of Chaos, they are absolutely something I imagine the wolf children would get into. Their new-ish song ‘Raka’ (on a 2019 EP with Golden Features) is something I listen to when I feel rage brewing under my skin and need to dance or run or move. Banger.
Ok lastly would be the Queen of the senses, Björk. She has consistently provided the world with emotional nourishment, perspective, and catharsis. Her set would be entirely up to her but I’d hope to hear ‘Army Of Me’ and ‘Joga’ as they’re two of my favorites. One is pretty hype and sometimes I just need to hear it. The other is just euphoria in a melody. It’s a high just listening to her.
Well, that’s my lineup! Of course, I’d be there too, playing my keyboard and watching the trees glow in the lights. The wolf children, I imagine, would feel very touched at our gesture of unity and compassion. Maybe they might stop their unending cycle of pain and revenge and dance to the music instead.
