Following up previous releases from the EP ‘Lose Love’ and ‘Adored’, ‘Dark Teeth’ once again showcases Xam’s songwriting mastery, rich vocals and compelling mix of beats and chilled vibes.
A testament to XamVolo’s innovative style and his way of creating visual worlds within his music, 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’) capable of granting her every desire.
In 12 short months, XamVolo has risen to the attention of critics and music fans the world over, been compared to everyone from D’Angelo to Anderson Paak, racked up hundreds of thousands of streams, landed countless places on influential playlists and been championed by a wealth of tastemakers – from Annie Mac and Gilles Peterson to Notion, Dummy Magazine and Afropunk.
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.
XamVolo has just completed a huge arena support tour across the UK with Paloma Faith which will culminate with his own headline show at London’s Omeara on the 11th April.
Perhaps, beyond the infectious big hits and breathtaking vocals, it’s the attention to detail and flourishes of genius that will keep garnering XamVolo so many comparisons to the greats of music.
