The Odds is the solo project of Albert Aguilar, a project that originally arrived on the scene alongside electronic group Bronze Whale for his debut EP Millions.

Flash forward to 2019, and The Odds returns with ‘Boca,’ the first single from his upcoming self titled debut album, and it certainly shows the artist has something up his sleeve. It’s a far-cry from the electro-bops of his debut joint EP, and reveals Aguilar’s more personal, gritty musical sensibilities.

Building from slow piano refrains and an echoing vocal take, the track swirls and rises with a dark grandeur until it bursts with raw emotional power around the two-and-a-half minute mark, with a wailing guitar solo washing over terse big-stadium percussion.
