Oxymorrons haben mit „Melanin Punk“ ihr lange erwartetes Debütalbum angekündigt. Das erscheint am 20. Oktober via Mascot Records und enthält einige spannende Features mit Künstlern wie Troi Irons, Kid Bookie, Hyro the Hero oder KANNER.

It’s about community, not division. Oxymorrons is for us, but the project represents the people and what brings us together. Our whole human existence is about connection. It’s everyone in the band’s uniqueness that makes us the crazy melting of sound and that’s a great analogy to how we feel about the world as a whole. Oxymorrons

Mit „Enemy“ und „Last Call“ waren zwei Songs daraus bereits bekannt, die Albumankündigung wurde nun von dem Track „Graveyard Words“ begleitet. Über den Song erzählt die Band:

It’s about speaking with intentions. Words carry weight and you can manifest positivity but also negativity with the things you say – on the extreme side of the spectrum it could cost you your life. It’s about the laws of attraction through words. The chorus sounds like a threat coming from an individual – like ‘yo watch yer mouth or I’ll f*ck you up’ – but it was really written from the perspective of the universe/karma warning us humans. A small example is we try not to use the word ‘hate’ in our vocabulary when describing something we don’t like. We’re not always successful, but just trying to remove that word so that we don’t attract hatred into our life and leave that portal open for hate to come through. You attract what you project, and we project positivity. Oxymorrons
