OXYD is a five-member band based in Paris, France, influenced by modern jazz musicians such as Jim Black, Steve Coleman, John Hollenbeck, Marc Ducret and bands like AlasNoAxis, Kneebody, Radiohead or Sonic Youth. The band play their own compositions inspired by European and American jazz music, but with influences of rock, pop, free jazz and contemporary music. Since its creation in 2006, the band has worked on personal and original material influenced by several styles like jazz, improvised music, contemporary music and rock music.
Over the course of ten years they released four albums and performed more than 150 concerts across France, Europe, United States and China. The last album was based on their influences, particularly the grunge influence, personified by rock bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Soundgarden. After a successful tour in the UK during Summer 2015 and in China in September 2016, the band will tour again from January 2018 with a brand new repertoire that will be created during fall 2017.
