First melodies off our upcoming album have been released today - the song 'A New Planet Is Born' comes with a wonderful videoclip by amazing Berliner artist collective Zeitguised! We have new stories to share, new songs for you.. they can be heard live here, sneaking out before the album will be released in September.
Indeed our times are shitty. Every now and then we are torn down by the sad stories created by our species. Yet we decisively tune into positive vibes and continue with what we need to do, with what we wish to do, with what we are passionate about doing. So here’s our strike back: a new planet out of OY’s universe will be ready for your ears by the end of this month - a first single from our upcoming space opera album. With excitement and love, OY.
We received a very short notice invitation to New York and are excited to be part of Northside Festival Brooklyn on June 12 and 13. And click below to have a look at some freshly uploaded live video footage from Paléo festival last summer and Télévision Suisse Romande/Couleur3 !
We have packed our bags: off to HAMBURG - NOCHTSPEICHER, DRESDEN - GROOVESTATION, BERLIN - XJAZZ FESTIVAL IM FLUXBAU. SEE YOU!
We're currently meditating on new music.. You might catch an unknown song or two at our upcoming shows!
After seeing many plants, animals and houses through windows of diverse vehicles, we're now taking a break and peeking into our own private backyards only. We'll be back in spring!
We'll soon be back on tour -- From Oslo to Rome and Bilbao to Salzburg, come dance with us! And in case you missed it.. our clip to the track 'My Name Is Happy' is online now! (the one with the sound bikes we talked about a while ago..)
The first part of our summer tour through France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Montréal and New York has been overwhelming! Un grand merci to everyone who made it happen, and to the guys in the background, but very important for your ears and eyes: Jan on sound, Thomas all around (and light supervision)! Moving on next week..
We started getting ready for the upcoming big tour moves by cycling through Berlin with our equipment and playing at chosen spots. Klara Geist provided the mobile sound bike system - big thx to Fanny & Willy, as well as to Mathieu and Renaud for shooting us - not to death! but for a video clip. More news on that soon... special Dankeschön to Andi!

It's been quite a year, we've seen many roads, rails, countries, and faces!
