Swedish producer Felix Snow experienced big radio success with Kiiara's "Gold" this summer, after a long march to the top. And while Oxymorron's "Asleep," which premieres on The FADER today, doesn't sound much like Kiiara's smash, it has Snow behind the boards and delivering what could be another big hit. The song, which is out this Friday on Tommy Boy Entertainment, sounds like a very good house party, but also its morning after. There are lots of handclaps to be found here, plus shots of liquor and lots of Sprite.
Over email, Demi from Oxymorrons explained the song's genre-mashing origins. "We had a lot of fun making 'Asleep,'" he said. "We went in wondering what it would sound like if Nirvana made a party track inspired by hip-hop. Hit the studio with Snow and a few hours later we gave birth to 'Asleep.'"
