Whether you choose to believe in the passing of time as an actual thing or not, here’s a fact: ODESZA's "Higher Ground" first dropped way back in July 2017. Now, nearly a year later, we finally have the official video for the Naomi Wild-featuring A Moment Apart single.
The video was produced by YBY and directed by Nima Nabili Rad, who previously helmed the video for Favored Nations' "I Can See You." Lorelle Crawford, Alana Priest, and Fika Tamiru star.

Another notable feature on A Moment Apart is Regina Spektor, who lends her creativity to "Just a Memory." In an interview with WBUR-FM back in January, the electronic duo—Clayton Knight and Harrison Mills—said the collab came together due to their own fandom of Spektor's discography. At first, Mills explained, they sent over a batch of demos thinking that she'd be "too big" to contribute, but then "it just kind of all lucked out that she liked the demos we sent."
The "Higher Ground" video will be supported by an extended run of shows that keeps the duo on the road through August. In addition to expected festival spots like Coachella and Hangout, ODESZA is doing back-to-back sold out shows at the WaMu Theater in their hometown of Seattle.
