If I could make a musical mood board with the title "Sci-Fi and Synth," Orka Odyssey would be at the very center. The Denver-based group is a progressive synth-pop band (and if you don't know about progressive (prog) rock, I suggest you dive in immediately) that wants to take you an an immersive musical experience.
