I Dont Know You

Speaking up on mental health: French alt-metal band ODC roar in with the demon-destroyer ‘I Don’t Know You’

Headed up by lead singer Celia Do, ODC fire their way to our hearts with lots of heavy 8 string guitars, fast-paced electronic sounds and moody melodic vocals that will leave you feeling inspired again.

The electric shock of a start is like a medic doing CPR on a passed out patient. You will feel almost breathless and a few sips of fluid will be needed.

This is all about trying your best to stay above water during this horrific time as the world bends into an unrealistic Rick & Morty type of world that was unimaginable a few years ago. There are so many temptations out there to hold onto and some are good but so many more are bad for you, and only sinks you further into the sinkhole of the downward spiral.

Her voice is so powerful and the spectacular synergy is forcefully dynamic; you can see the sparks flying off the guitar strings. The vocals are lit with a fuse and these make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up to attention as she weaves her way with her band’s full backing.

ODC speak up about real issues which are an admirable characteristic in anyone’s book. ‘I Don’t Know You’ is about wanting to know yourself again and what your dreams and goals really are. In a world full of mistrust and innuendos, the French alt-metal outfit pull the blanket off the self-doubt and show us that it’s okay to feel pain. If you talk about it and ask for help, there will be a kind face to help you no matter what. You can destroy your demons if you believe you can.
