Odezenne

  • France
  • Post bling-bling black rap

Eclectic trio, enigmatic triptych, unique if nothing else. Neither completely rap, nor entirely chanson, maybe just a little bit rock with some electro packaging…. it’s not easy to define Odezenne. That said, if there is one area in which they excel, it’s urban poetry and live performances. Their deep voices set to dark litanies and the cold beats of a throbbing rhythm box resonate with power and anchor them firmly in the centre of your cerebral cortex. These French guys have sharp tongues, a humanist soul and some hard-hitting punchlines. They hit hard, but fair. French rap is doing well, merci !
