Odezenne is a French music group from the city of Bordeaux in southwestern France. Their sound has been characterised as being notably eclectic. The group consists of Alix, Jacques, and Mattia who were childhood friends. The group has released three studio albums, one EP, and multiple music videos.
Alix and Mattia met in middle school. The former is from Île-de-France, and the latter is from Milan. The inspiration for the group's name comes from this period. "Odezenne was the name of our old principal. We used it in a freestyle and it made us laugh, so we kept it," explains Alix. In 2005, the group was initially called O2zen (which has a phonetic similarity in French to Odezenne). The two friends later met Jacques, from Choisy-le-Roi, who at the time went by Jaco H17.
The group started recording their first songs between 2005 and 2007. A friend offered them their first gig at Inca, an underground bar known throughout the city of Bordeaux as being the place where many local groups first played. Odezenne filled the room and returned to the bar three more times in April 2007. They decided to record an album, put on concerts, and start their label, Universeul, since they wanted to be independent. Released in November 2008, their first studio album, titled Sans chantilly, was well received by critics.
