"This song is an anthem for the people who refuse to be boxed in by society’s status quo"
Oxymorrons recently released their EP 'Mohawks & Durags', which is a perfect culmination of the band's varied and visceral passions.
One of the tracks on it is 'Definition', an anthem for those unafraid to be who they want to be, no matter how much the world wants to hold you back.
It's bold, brash and brimming with infectious and intense hooks that will lodge themselves deep with your ear.
The band had this to say about what the song represents for them:
“This song is an anthem for the people who refuse to be boxed in by society’s status quo. For the individual who fights to stand up and stand out. The definition of the undefined. Repping New York till we die while giving you the biggest soaring hook we could imagine. The Alt-scene is changing and evolving. It’s a microcosm of the global revolution we are currently experiencing. Every revolution needs a soundtrack. We are proud to provide one of the frequencies to said soundtrack; that not only defines us, but also many others! This is bigger than Oxymorrons. This is about the long overdue but necessary evolution that guitar-driven music needs! What doesn’t evolve becomes extinct and we refuse to let a musical art form our ancestors architected, be stifled into extinction.”
It also features Jason Aalon Butler, who had this to say about it:
“I feel this track is an unabashed statement about who this band are as POC people in a musical and cultural space that at one point required you to squeeze yourself within its constructs to be recognized thus abandoning other outside cultural nuances that would inherently make your involvement more unique. To me that would be genuinely alternative. Oxymorrons are the New Testament to the destruction of such constructs and THAT is TRULY alternative.”

And here is 'Green Vision', because it's also an absolute banger:
