Off of the back of a huge arena tour support slot across the UK, rising Neo-Soul polymath XamVolo shares next single ‘ADORED’, taken from his upcoming debut EP A DAMN FINE SPECTACLE.
Co-written and produced by XamVolo alongside Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey/Rihanna/Kwabs) and Rich Cooper, the dreamy and Frank Ocean-esque “Adored” brings the next chapter to the EP. Released via Universal on the 13th April, A Damn Fine Spectacle is an inventive concept EP and serves as a teasing distillation of what is to be explored on his forthcoming debut album, All The Sweetness on the Surface.
A testament to XamVolo’s cinematic method of creating worlds within his music, across four songs, the EP tells a neo-noir story of a young girl who finds herself confronted with a hive containing a black honey substance, (which XamVolo has named ‘Slaize’) that can grant her every desire. The second piece of the story ‘Adored’ sees the young girl, having taken the bait, dedicating her time to chase the dream she has been sold. Even though the façade is exhausting to maintain, she hasn’t give up.
The accompanying artwork for the EP features a bespoke illustration from prolific London artist Illustrator, animator, designer and exhibitor, Koby Martin. Described as ‘what art has been missing’ and nominated for the Artist Extraordinaire Award, Koby has worked with the top names from the creative and music industries. Koby says, “Xam’s sound is completely different from anything I have worked. His music threw me in the deep end, one that feels like I have been missing on my creative journey in the music industry.”
