Proud to be firmly installed in the new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making fusion music "cool" again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters and Weather Report, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. Imagine 70's funk-fusion meets a modern dance party!
Although the ensemble cast enjoys a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam, this fledgling "nu-sion" project is growing a unique and rabid following by commanding audiences at theaters, clubs, and major national festivals since 2012.
The powerhouse quintet's live show has been described by critics and fans alike as "lethal funk", "explosive", "jaw dropping", and "musically mesmerizing". For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Live For Live Music featured the band in their December 2017 playlist, and called them: "A sonic force worth the experience, and has the potential to make a serious run at the big time. No joke.” The band has been praised by Artsy Magazine for its “enchanting arrangements, intensifying interludes and attention-grabbing guitar riffs” and has begun to expand beyond its rabid NYC fan base to cities throughout the Northeast.
The band’s live shows combine hard-hitting psychedelic rock with melodic flourishes and thrilling tempo-changing explorations that pushes the senses to their limits. With their improvised electronic jams, OCAC always draws a passionate crowd and enthusiasts of many genres. Of Clocks and Clouds forges their way into your heart, mind, and soul.
