Who says siblings can’t get along? Local LA-based brother-sister duo XYLØ have made some noise over the past year with a handful of moody electro-pop tunes, including last year’s “America” and “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” which received spins from KCRW DJs, including both Jasons Bentley & Kramer. Their latest track, “Bang Bang,” comes from their debut EP, America, due on Disruptor Records next week, and it fits the mold with an insistent beat, cliffhanger drop-outs & more.
To quote the band:
“Bang Bang is about when you feel unstoppable and all that matters is now,” says Paige Duddy. “And the EP is very autobiographical. Each song is a mini chapter of our lives. They range from love and euphoria to heartache and anxiety (and everything in between.”
“This EP was created out of my home studio which I had built in just two weeks,” says Chase Duddy. “We instantly jumped into creating XYLØ, making our vision come to life. We had very little money and resources to get the project off the ground. We collaborated on the song writing, which I then produced and mixed all out of my garage. To me this EP represents the inception of XYLØ and making music independently. We’re now fortunate to be under Disruptor Record’s wing with the launch of the America EP.”
