In a new video, ODESZA tell their story about starting production on their massively popular album, A Moment Apart. The duo needed to get away from the pressures and distractions of everyday life, so they took a writing trip to Lake Chelan in Washington.

They struggled with finding inspiration in the first couple days. That’s when Naomi Wild came in. In the below video, the singer/songwriter tells her story about finding inspiration to write from ODESZA’s performance at the Do LaB during Coachella 2014. Wild wrote the lyrics for “Higher Ground,” recorded them, and had her manager find a way to send the vocals to ODESZA. Once they heard her vocals, their writers block was cured. The rest is history.
