Oddnesse on new song: “Ultimately it’s a song about transformation and spiritual travel and vastness”

The multifaceted creator and vocalist abstractly ties themes of mortality, the limits of time and matter through lyrical symbolisms.

Songwriter and producer Rebeca Arango’s music project Oddnesse manifests sounds of grunge, indie rock, and groovy dream pop in her recently released work.

Oddnesse’s latest track, “Hot Air”, digs into psychedelic guitar licks, reverb swimming pools of distortion pedals and groovy basslines while speaking of patterns in the universe.

According to Rebeca, the song’s lyrics “contemplate dreams and death and our relationship with the Universe, conjuring fear and majesty, taking a playful approach to the unknown. Ultimately it’s a song about transformation and spiritual travel and vastness.”

This multifaceted creator and vocalist abstractly ties themes of mortality, the limits of time and matter through lyrical symbolisms of salamanders, Saturn, the origins of Satan and death, or simply the end that is “coming for you.”

Despite the morbidity of someone’s passing, and the wonder of what happens after… the song’s melody and composition emote an almost perky, upbeat disposition that calls listeners to observe these themes rather than resent them, or fear them even.

The writing is clean with a classic format of chord structure that utilizes nice contrasts of tension and release and is seamlessly mixed and crafted to bring the world this indiehead banger.
