Ode is a five-piece group made out of strings and sticks and memories that stare at them from the past, like sling shots, drawn back, ready to let go any time something goes wrong. But they stick together, bass or no bass, rent or no rent, slowly but surely they are mistaken for a gypsy ensemble that plays rock ‘n’ roll-punk and Bolero ballads, maintaining that yearning and earning just enough so that they don’t burst in tears, when they are exposed to clean cut jib jab joints and late night star dusting. Backing up mini skirts marching to $50 bills, sticking to the accordion noise that came and left for coastal extravaganza in hope that it’ll score a pair of stockings in Umag somewhere. Ode share their dark poems and dreams through an authentic rock vibe, a familiar, yet new wave of melodious tunes that creates a blend of Chicago rock music.
