EUROPEAN TOUR SUPPORTING BOMBA ESTÉREO
We announce with great pleasure to be on European tour with the Colombian band Bomba Estéreo. It kicked off at a pumping Ancienne Belgique last night, and tomorrow it's Bataclan, Paris, sold out as well. We are humbled to open for this great band, wonderful people, with a colorful and energetic show in all these great venues. See you around - don’t miss it - tickets are rare. Contact us via www.fanklub.com/oymusic if in need of access in a sold out venue.
NOW BE THE TIME
Our new single "Now Be The Time" is out now on all streaming platforms and on Bandcamp.
Big up to everyone involved in the making and to our new label partners Mouthwatering Records!
»Now Be the Time« is a joyful call to action. The piano-led piece marries futuristic soul with a laid-back dancehall beat, an addictive hook with unconventional songwriting. As the third single from their new album, it sees the Berlin-based OY pick up on the political themes of the former two while underscoring its empowering message with colourful sounds—a revolution you can sashay to.
Black Lives Matter!
And the second single "One On The Row - BLM" - of our upcoming album is out today: Hands up in solidarity, sing along! Tomorrow will mark the 2nd death anniversary of George Floyd. Back in 2020, the words "I cant breathe" and the slogan "Black Lives Matter" spread around the world like a wildfire. While there had been many similar cases of brutal injustice before and after, this one, caught on camera, shook up the world - enough is enough. In our song, the metaphor of "sitting in the fire" speaks of how Black people are literally in the line of fire, but it also stands for the fuel of resistance. The music explodes with a desire to live, to blossom, to even dance and blaze up the fire of liberation and collective healing.”
