Review: "House of Cards" - Oda Loves You

Oda Loves You has already made a splash into 2024 with three single releases. Her latest track, "House of Cards," just dropped on February 2nd. The dark, dance pop track is reminiscent of artists like Sia and Tate McRae. Through the song, Oda Loves You sings about taking risks, fights, and falling apart. Backing the lyricism is an infectious pop production that had me dancing around in my seat. If you love a moody pop track that tackles difficulty in life and relationships, this one's for you. This was my first taste of Oda Love You's music, and I am excited to dive deeper into the rest of her discography.

"House of Cards" by Oda Love You begins with a dramatic synth introduction, before it builds into an upbeat pop track, as she sings about feeling fragile and a relationship on the verge of falling apart. In the infectious chorus, she sings the refrain, "It's a house of cards / As the queen of hearts / I don't break when I fall." With lyrics like "You better hold you breath / Before we collapse" and "Stop hitting the wall / It's a house of cards," Oda Love You paints the picture of a relationship that is on the brink of collapsing, as they both make missteps and try to keep them together. The song is completed with a dark, alt pop production that guided the track along and kept me hooked from the start.

Norwegian pop singer-songwriter Oda Loves You began her career with eight years in Los Angeles, working with producers and performing weekly at "House of Blues" on Sunset Strip. Her first EP Champagne released in 2018, and she has been improving her danceable pop sound ever since. If you enjoyed "House of Cards," make sure to check out the rest of her discography on your favorite streaming platform.
