about

UBYK's first EP "Matryoshka" was a showcase of simplicity - recorded almost entirely with acoustic guitars and vocals. "The Odds" EP introduces dub-tinged basslines, flamenco guitars, samples and groovy drums to create a uniquely L.A. sound.

The songs on the album were played live in various venues before UBYK entered the studio and have morphed throughout the recording process. The album was recorded at "Dodger Studiom" - a DIY studio in L.A.'s Echo Park neighborhood. Additional mixing/recording was done in "The Dream Room" and "Spike Studios."

What are "The Odds" of being in the right place at the right time? UBYK's new EP is for anyone who considers "The Odds" of how they got to where they are today.

Track Name: The Prisoner
I am a prisoner today
I've got no place to go and nothing to say
I count the hours watch the days slip away
I've got some time to waste and there is no escape
There is no escape

And now they say I told u so
And now they say u should've known

But they'll never understand just how it feels to be alive. They'll never just what it takes to be alive. They'll never understand until the day that they have died.

But they're not so innocent. And I'm not so innocent

I've got no visitors today.
Just me myself and I, A bird in a cage
I'm such a pitiful display
A crime I won't admit but I've got to pay
Yeah I've got to pay

And now they say I told u so
And now they say u should've known

But they'll never understand just how it feels to be alive. They'll never just what it takes to be alive. They'll never understand until the day that they have died.

But they're not so innocent.
And I'm not so innocent
They're not so innocent
And I'm not so innocent
Track Name: Golden Web
I met a lonely widow
Ended up in her silk bed
By the time I had awoken
I was hanging by a thread
She was cunning and a recluse
And she spun a golden web
And in time i'll be injected
I will end up dead.

Now I'm stuck here in this pattern
And i can't seem to break free
I have chosen not to struggle
I'll just sip my cup of tea
She's been waiting oh so patient
But I've never been so still
I can feel every vibration
Cause I know she'll Kill.

Weave your web. Leave my head.
Weave your web. Leave my head.
Weave your web. Leave my head.
Weave your web. Leave my head.
Track Name: Underground
Every room is getting smaller
Every inch is getting shorter
Every ceiling’s getting lower
And my will is getting weaker

I’m underground, I’m underground
I’m turned around, I’m upside down
I’m underground, I’m underground
I’m feeling down, Gonna turn it around

My blood is running colder
And my heart is beating faster
The walls are coming closer
Closing in just like a casket

I’m underground, I’m underground
I’m turned around, I’m upside down
I’m underground, I’m underground
I’m feeling down, Gonna turn it around

I’m on the run I’m on the road
I’m growing up I’m growing old
I’m only skin I’m only bones
Track Name: SPEAK (Nothing To Lose)
i've been a pawn and ive been a rook
i've sat silent as the medicine took
i've been excused i have been overlooked
i took the bait but i never got hooked
now ive got some thing to prove
and i havent got a thing to lose
ive got something to show u
and i havent got a thing to lose

mmm mmm
mm mm
aaaa aaah
aaa aaa aa aaah

fed this lie since the day i was born
kept alive by the delicate swarm
swollen eyes but my blood is still warm
and im headed for the eye of the storm
now ive got something....
and i havent....thing to lose

i'm not the only one i know
we cant be bought we cant be sold
we wont be left out in the cold
just look around were not alone

now we've got something to prove
and we havent got a thing to lose
we've got something to show you
and we haven't got a thing to lose
...thing to lose
...thing to lose
...thing to lose
aaa aaa aaa
