Following the recent success of their critically acclaimed singles ‘Lights On’ and ‘Low Tide’, upfront electro-pop trio XY&O are set to unveil the latest instalment of their upcoming EP ‘Shimmer & Shine’
This year the Cardiff based trio return to stake their claim on tropically infused house music with the announcement of the third single ‘Fahrenheit’ from forthcoming debut EP ‘Shimmer & Shade’. This glittering summer jam aims to help the listener escape from the gloomy winter months, slipping back into a sun-drenched paradise with the perfect blend of ethereally high synth interchanges and feel good beats.
The narrative of retrospect, lust, and longing showcases a delicious combination of warm synths, melodic house beats and the tropical sounds of organic percussion. Rolling baselines, and glitchy lead guitar carry the fearless indie-pop vocals from lead singer Skip Curtis. ‘Fahrenheit’ injects the listener with irresistible summer-romance nostalgia that will have them pining for clear blue oceans and white beaches.
“Fahrenheit is about the whole ethos of summer coming to an end and the melancholy that goes with it. About looking forwards to when it comes again and what it will bring.” – Skip Curtis (Lead vocalist)
