New York neo-soul and hip-hop duo launches debut album
OSHUNs ‘bittersweet vol: 1’ is the first longplayer from the New Yorks duo. In 10 eclectic songs, the duo raps and sings about spiritual experiences and their world ‘Oshuniverse’. Niambi and Thandi complement each other well, with an impressive fluencey and a broad rangs of sounds and rhymes. They combine their afrofuturistic sound with r&b, hip-hop and soul. Their striking style was picked up by the likes of The Fader and Viceland. Jorja Smith – who is to be heard on the track ‘My World’ - is a fan too.
The duo describes itself as follows: ‘We are new goddesses on the block, and we have traveled here from the center of the earth, the land of sweetness in the 10th dimension, the Oshuniverse. We are here to hydrate your souls and empower you on your trip upward! May your journey be full of sweetness and your experience one of healing!’

In the press ‘The duo, made up of rapper-singers Niambi and Thandi, trades bars and melodies throughout, over production that touches a wide range of sounds and genres. One song in particular, 'My World' featuring Jorja Smith, stands out as a thoughtful, introspective piece of the pie.’ - The Fader
