PREMIERE: The Odds’ Bittersweet Single “CLF”

CelebMix is here with the premiere of “CLF”, the second single from Albert Aguilar’s, also known as The Odds, debut album.

Albert has already released a 3-track EP titled Million in collaboration with the electronic group Bronze Whale. In fact, one of the group members gave him the idea to call himself The Odds. In early January, he dropped “Boca”, the emotionally charged lead single from his upcoming self-titled album. The 11-track LP is set to drop on March 6th, 2019.

Today, we get “CLF”: a song that manages to convey the bittersweetness of love in under 3 minutes. The song was written about an intense yet short-lived relationship Albert had. “I loved every moment I spent with that girl, the good, bad, and the ugly,” he recalls. The specific references included in the lyrics make it a personal song, but with underlying messages that most can relate to.

 “As humans…people…it’s in our nature to move on but some feelings you just never forget.  And I think that’s pretty damn awesome, because even if it’s something you interpret as “bad,” you got through it.”

Albert’s melancholy vocals during the refrain of “Yeah, okay, a heart breaks” contrasted with the upbeat production conveys that nostalgic feeling we get when looking upon past relationships. Overall, the message is one of bittersweet acceptance of the ups and downs of love and relationships. And with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we think that’s a beautiful message about love to hear.
