OrKa Odyssey “FLIP FLOP” Recording Session
We are excited to share a glimpse of our final studio session as this “incarnation” of OrKa Odyssey. “I was on a big time freedom trip (still am) and wanted to do something intense and free as a full band in the studio, but I also wanted to harken back to a time when music was arguably more sophisticated - thus the 16th century costume/Whig 😁 and classical organ arrangement which guides the track (a few days later I replaced the midi keys with my vintage Kimball Swinger 800). I’ve been calling the tune “FLIP FLOP” for now. As far as the forthcoming vocals and lyrical content, I feel like this track definitely reflects the paranoia of our times, especially the political climate, but unfortunately also in a lot of our own personal lives. I believe “FLIP FLOP” was a turning point for the band. It signaled the departure of one of our longtime members (our drummer), and in a lot of ways it was the finish line we had to cross before LOVEFEAST could be born. 🐬👑 🔜 ❤️🍯”. - K. Malone.

this one goes out to all you 80's & 90's kids !
second full length album
now available everywhere!
See what people are saying about the new album...
Their latest DIY album, "The Legend of the Golden Dolphin," appears at first glance to be loosely influenced by video games such as "The Legend of Zelda." However, the group was inspired by imagination, spirituality, and their favorite nostalgic tv shows such as "Stranger Things."
Where no man has gone before, into beyond...
From Nashville to Denver
OrKa Odyssey is a progressive oceanic synth pop band comprised of human vessels administering Spirit through sound. Their shows are theatrical and electrifying with digital and liquid projection art, lasers, glowing crystals, and sometimes even a golden dolphin from outer space! OrKa Odyssey makes music that is highly danceable and melodic with both radio hit potential and experimental vibes. The group has a boisterous stage presence with crowd pleasing dance moves and tripped out improvisational stunts.
