OIEE Premieres New Song “Marathon” on BBC Radio 1
Hungarian producer-songwriter Bence Kocsis, aka OIEE premiered a new song “Marathon” on BBC Radio 1's Soundsystem Party.
The song is the fifth single off of his upcoming sophomore album “Two Sides”, which is expected to be released in April 2023.
It was written and produced by Kocsis Bence. The accompanying music video was directed by Balázs Lippai.
The track was developed using some chops from an earlier flute take, mixed with organic broken drum grooves.
The lyrics refer to running away from solutions rather than trying to confront the issue or communicate which leaves you being stuck.
The video features a kitchenhand finding cure for the everyday dullness after the neverending shift of the grocery store clerk and the daydreaming warehouse worker.
- The new album is his first album in three years since the 2020 album “Urban Camouflage” and features guest appearances from SENA, Aluphobia, WaTa, and Fanni Zahár.
Bence Kocsis said of the album, “With this project, I wanted to try what it is like to work with other singers, even in the form of remixes. Many music has gathered in my brain over the years, for which I wanted to make a separate platform. This is more like a production work, less bounded by the band-specific compromises. I started as a songwriter, vocalist, so melodies are still important for me, when I’m experimenting with dance music. Bicep, Disclosure, Moderat, Jamie XX, Caribou and Glass Animals had the biggest influence on the new album. I’m working on some other tracks with Grammy-Award winner Steve Dub (Chemical Brothers), those tracks are also coming out later this year, stay tuned!”
