Watching electronic musicians onstage isn’t always interesting. Pulling at knobs and jabbing at computers, they sometimes fail to engage with spectators. The music is what must catch the audience — the beats, the ambiance. Seattle production duo Odesza has been making ear-catching music since forming back in 2012. Their songs create summer in a room, employing dreamy melodies and sun-drenched vocals — check out their new single “Sun Models” for an example. After performing at the Knitting Factory in November, the pair hits the Bartlett next week.
