Odelet – ‘Pisces Pie’


Singer/songwriter, producer, and visual artist Odelet presents a gripping sound across her new album, Pisces Pie. Lush vocal entrancement navigates across soundscapes propelled solely by keyboard and drum machine, melding old school hip-hop influences with pop, soul, and R&B flair. The album is an impressive display in atmosphere from Odelet, who is originally from Detroit and presently based in California.

“When it comes to my vocals, I just hear what I hear… something about it can feel like jazz,” Odelet explains. “But in terms of production, this album was definitely inspired by my love of old school Hip-Hop.” The title track is exemplary of that dynamic engrossment, intertwining flourishing, jazzy piano tones and sporadic bass pulses within a late-night vocal enthrallment. “Paired” is is another standout with its ooh-ing vocal layers and lounge-friendly rhythmic pull.

Pisces Pie is consistently commanding in its moody productions. “Cinderella” expresses a desire to “fall in love again,” within a booming bass intrigue, fully impressing, while the concluding “Carousel” further embraces the jazz realm into the gorgeous “so exquisite,” refrain. Pisces Pie is an enveloping success from Odelet.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Indie Soul.
