bio

 

Odysseus Finn is a vessel that has been carefully composed over the past two years by Michael McQuilken and David Van Witt to employ an epic mythos in its musical storytelling of revolutionary ideas, (even simply that real transformation is possible; or to remember that before we seemingly emerged separate, we were merged). If fire could blaze in the cold dark of space, their harmonies would signal out like ceremonial smoke. Their words are directive and hopeful; generational apathy is displaced by intention. Creation is beautiful when it flashes quick and bright, but a bigger bang is more likely when it burns slow-fanned, and like a steady strum, is hypnotic, its ember sustaining god-sized gaze until the tension of attention bursts them both. A grander merging occurs in the event decay. An easily misunderstood spiritual supernova - if Star Wars were a record label, Odysseus Finn would be Darth Vader’s band.
