The two come have come a long way from their respective pasts. David Kirshenbaum was a corporate consultant while Michael Lipp was a strip-club DJ. After leaving these stepping stones in their past, David and Michael formed OYLS. The two have created a relatable experience with “Maps,” capturing the tumultuous time of post-college life. The song provokes the thought of overcoming uncertainty and failure with the simple yet upbeat notion that “it’s alright.”

Michael Lipp describes the lyrics of “Maps” perfectly here: “The lyrics came about through reflections during this post college transition time. And “its alright” kept coming up in my self talk and characterized the time in my life with a lot of complexity. As a mantra that sometimes was doubt, reassurance, repression, acceptance.”
