Odeons are an pop rock band from Kaarina, Finland whose explosive new track Allowed To Fall caught my ear.

Kicking off with a stuttering guitar riff, things quickly hit their stride, with the looping riff giving way to rumbling bass and crystal clear vocals. At the chorus, the heavy rock melts away to a sweeping ethereal interlude. Things build back to the chorus’s climactic moment where the guitar hits once again. The song has a simple message – as humans we falter and that’s fine.
Odeons consist of the duo of Mikko Jaakkola and Pati. They’ve been playing together since 2013, experimenting with genres and trying to redefine guitar-based music. Their journey has landed them a sound that is both accessible and fresh-feeling.
