This Is What We Look Like And Our Origin Story Is Also Here!


NYDTyson (aka Neil Young deGrasse Tyson) is the musical lovechild of Eric Radloff (aka Okudaxij) and Nick Campbell (aka thorbzashmorbz). Nick and Eric met their freshman year at the University of Southern California in the first class of the Popular Music Program and have been writing songs together ever since. They were both members of the LA Indie Rock band Bear Attack, which was active from 2011-2016. After Bear Attack disbanded, Nick and Eric spent some time writing their own songs and touring/recording as sidemen with other artists. Eventually, they decided to combine their love of electrified acoustic guitars, odd meter grooves, existential dread, and 1000 page novels and began writing what would be the first NYDTyson songs in late 2016, playing their first show at the Satellite in Silverlake on May 1, 2017.

Aside from having the best band name ever, NYDTyson brings to the table irreverent, yet introspective songs and a totally crushing live show. If you like garage rock brutality, brooding indie aesthetics and being called an “Egg” several hundred times, this band will seriously rock your socks off. Their debut EP, “If You’re So Smart, Why Are You So Sad?” comes out on December 8th, 2017.
