In Ancient Greek it means to sing, in Bosnian it means to leave, in Chicago Ode means a five piece indie rock group that specializes in combining elements of balkan folk, Dark americana and world punk.  Founded by brothers, Robert Palos (lead guitar) and Davor Palos (lead vocal) and brought to perfection by fellow group members Nikola Dokic (GUitar), Elliot Taggart (Bass) and Daniel Crane (drums).

With influences ranging from Nick Cave to Alice in Chains to old world balkan folk, Ode has created a sound all their own and impossible to bookshelf. Ballad rock, stadium rock, gypsy rock, Punk, funk, grunge, and jazz infusions woven and interwoven creating something new and something wild.   The melodic explosion of energy that Ode infiltrates on its audience captures and consumes even the roudiest/raucous of unintended and uninterested ears, making fans and dancers of skeptics and passers-by
