Dark pop singer XYLØ delves into belonging and feeling lost on quirky production “aliens,” which offers the first sneak peek into her upcoming debut album unamerican beauty. The track which was written after a girl’s night out with childhood friends is a touching exploration of how a sense of community guides us through good and tough times equally.
With an outlandish soundscape full of trippy effects, the track is enveloped in earworm vocals which carry us through lyrics which come alive as an anthem for every outsider in the world.A hopeful track that makes us feel loved and accepted even in our eccentricities, it acts as a perfect introduction to the record which is set to take us through XYLØ’s experiences living and making music in America, the land of liberty.
The music video which takes us through a day in the life of the singer and her community of outsiders is an uplifting layer to the catchy, feel-good production. Showcasing XYLØ’s ability to observe and introspect on the world around her, the track is one more step in a carefully crafted solo career.
Paige Duddy who grew up surrounded by the reverberant notes of a musical family, began writing and recording music with her brother, releasing their first song in 2015. Building their name and skill as a duo, they split up and Paige assumed the creative identity of XYLØ, slowly and steadily establishing a reputation as a rising queen of dark pop – this latest offering only serving to cement this status.
