I call a friend, the one that mirrors my wish to be someone better. No needs where there is peace and where any travel leads somewhere...
[Splinters - Odette Di Maio]
The album includes 6 digital songs, in English, mostly written and produced in Belgium with artist and producer Jan De Block for Addictive Noise Records label. It also features Luc van Lieshout from Tuxedomoon.
“Infinity pool” is a blend of acoustic, refined and melancholic sounds that perfectly fit the warm, crystalline and expressive voice of Odette and is about a spiritual connection with the higher dimensions of self and transcendent worlds:
1.“Sudden sparks of light” are those surprising moments when we realize we can break free from a limiting past and let unexpected resources grow inside of us.
2.“Non-existence” is about the doubts that torture us when a love affair has not started yet, it does not give us the expected securities and melancholy hides behind waiting.
3.“Past and future” is about the possibility of diving into transcendental and otherworldly experiences and of the wonderful support that we can receive when we expand our senses.
4.“Visions of absence” revises a song by Miss O, re-arranged in an essential version, only vocals, piano and bass, which imagines visions of a day of loss and separation.
5.“Splinters” is an older track written by Odette that fits perfectly with the other songs mood and closes the album.
To embellish her work, Odette also interprets “Circle”, a song performed originally by Texan artist Edie Brickell, at the end of the 80s.
The idea behind the name “Infinity pool” is that of a primordial soup, from which we all come and to which we all aspire to return, after a long and somehow exhausting evolutive path. Emotions, thoughts, and identity changes distinguish this journey that brings us inside and outside of ourselves, with many new insights.
Infinity pool is also the name of a pool that faces the suggestive landscape of the Sayan Valley near Ubud in Bali and in which Odette got portrayed for the album cover.
The first single is “Non-existence”, which video is shot entirely in Bali and pictures Odette inside the villa of the Taman Bebek Resort in Ubud. The new video is "Circle", published on February 2019.
