"Home" is the first single off of Odd Us's debut EP "The Tree and The River".
With so much of our world in turmoil, both socially or environmentally, its hard to find a place to rest our hope. "Home" is an anthemic song about hope; about returning to simpler times.
The music video was shot by Henrik Christofferson, a Swedish director based out of Malmo, Sweden. It stars Elaina Bellis, who plays a young transient girl living in the industrial alleys of downtown LA. The video was shot over 3 days in LA, Salvation Mountain, the Salten Sea, and Joshua Tree.
Sword in the stone
"Sword In The Stone", performed by both Aras and female vocalist Amy Kuney (One half of the indie band MYpet), is a back and forth between lovers explaining their sides of a breakup.
The music video was co-directed by James Branaman and Aras Baskauskas. Shot over 3 months at various locations in Santa Monica and Venice, the split screen concept attacks our fundamental views of relationship and ask the viewer to acknowledge the core issue of projection in romantic relationships.
