Song of the Day: One More Night – XY&O

Welsh haze-pop trio XY&O release new single ‘One More Night (Lemonade)’, the opening single from their second EP ‘Powder Rooms’, set for release later this year.

The summer ready number documents the motives of those who seek out carnal pleasures and the expectations people have. The accompanied video, directed by British filmmaker Alexander Derby, stars the adult model Lauren Brock. The video shows Lauren standing, gazing into a mirror while slowly the video allows herself to reveal who she really is.

The rest of the EP follows suit with ‘Sky’ – an escapist song, about the desire to find space, psychically and emotionally, and ‘Mesmerised’ is about sheer devotion to another.

With monthly streaming numbers of 1.5 million, XY&O‘s musical content reflects the many faces of their home city Cardiff, with song imagery ranging from shorelines to strip clubs. There is a grit that underlies XY&O‘s summery pop and the stories within….

‘One More Night (Lemonade)’ is out now on Apple and Spotify…before you head off, watch the video to their latest offering.

New Music Video: My Brudda – Artan

ARTAN is proving to be a captivating artist. His unique sound combines singing and lyricism via unique melodies and clever rap verses. Having recently debuted ‘Opposite Interests’ on SBTV, the first taste of his ‘Breaking Stereotypes’ E.P, he now releases ‘My Brudda’ exclusively on GRM alongside the official release of the E.P.

The record is a soulful ditty with a hip-hop twang bouncing along beneath ARTAN’s jazzy vocals. The depth to his voice makes an intriguing listen as his lyrics show off a rugged charm and swagger to his manner.

Having turned the heads of rap fans and tastemakers with the release of his Bl@ckbox freestyle in 2016, platforms have been hot on his heels to release new content and judging by the YouTube comments that are already pouring in for ‘My Brudda’, it is clear to see why ARTAN is commanding an array of support from major online platforms such as Link Up TV, GRM Daily and SBTV.

‘Breaking Stereotypes’ is out now on Spotify and Apple Music; catch the fresh new video for ‘My Brudda’ below.
