Listen// New life for XYLØ

Electropop artist drops killer new single.

It’s been too long since we last got treated to a new slice of electropop glory from XYLØ. Luckily, the wait has been worth it as new track Alive is an unstoppable electropop juggernaut that is a million miles removed from other offerings.

When we first caught wind of XYLØ, we described the outfit’s single LA Love Song as being doom-laden electropop that channeled Lana Del Rey. Alive is very different. The track pulses with a near-EDM energy and every sound is more optimistic and upbeat, essentially bouncing out of the speakers and into your ears with tropical splendour. And the change is perfection.

The vocals still contain their trademark sound of mild disillusionment and the vocal sampling is still expertly used to strengthen hooks, but this still feels fresh and new. The band seems to have a new lease on life and the future is looking very bright.
