Songbyrd Presents

Vinyl Lounge, All Ages

--

Oxymorrons began as a collaboration between Queens-bred brothers, Kami (K.I.) and Demi (Deee), who joined forces to create a hip hop and rock fusion act. After years spent playing and touring with other groups, the brothers decided it was time to set the New York scene ablaze with their sonic creations. The lineup expanded with the addition of staple drummer Matty Mayz, whose blistering talent alongside bassist Joe Jordan and guitarist Adam November has become an intricate part of the bands live show. The genre-blending masterminds use their musical platform to speak for, and to, the rejected. Their message of embracing ones individuality resonates with their fellow underdogs.

The potent mixture of the band’s sharp-witted lyrics and mesmerizing music has earned them a legion of loyal fans and inspired collaborations with Travie McCoy, Saba, Sam Gongol of Marian Hill, Maxine Ashley (Pharrell/I am OTHER) and Wynter Gordon. Oxymorrons caught attention with their undeniable artistry and found synergy in brand partnerships with RedBull, Converse, Rocawear, DeadBolt, Karmaloop, and Modify Watches. It's their captivating live show full of non-stop energy that has music lovers entranced. The band has played many notable festivals including SXSW, Firefly, AfroPunk, Funk Fest, CMJ on top of sharing the stage with dynamic acts like Lupe Fiasco, Common, Ludacris, Juicy J, Gym Class Heroes, Bruno Mars, Bad Rabbits, Rihanna, Salt N Pepa, Danny Brown, Waka Flocka and more.

They have received support from various alternative and hip hop media outlets, including Uproxx, Paste Music and Consequence Of Sound and have had their music featured in ads for ABC's 'The Mayor and Converse.

The band released 'Brunch' as the first single from their next project on February 2, 2018. VIBE dubbed them "The Mash Out Posse" for their clash of hip-hop, rock, funk and alternative sounds.

The pairing of Matt Bones and Samy.Language is one that works well throughout as the former offers well-paced singing verses that interplay with Samy’s fervent flow that tends to dip off into unexpected asides and diagonal wordplay.

Bonelang aims to celebrate and nurture self-awareness as a means for strengthening communal, familial, and romantic relationships. The work forces the cultural cherry picker to look within, digest one's own flaws, and redefine one's outlook with a more full-bodied disposition of compassion, empathy, and love; Matt & Samy included. Bonelang asks to focus more on what we have in common rather than what we do not.
