Off of the back of a huge arena tour support slot across the UK, rising Neo-Soul polymath XamVolo shares next single â€˜ADOREDâ€™, 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 â€œAdoredâ€� 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 XamVoloâ€™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 â€˜Slaizeâ€™) that can grant her every desire. The second piece of the story â€˜Adoredâ€™ sees the young girl, having taken the bait, dedicating her time to chase the dream she has been sold. Even though the faÃ§ade is exhausting to maintain, she hasnâ€™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 â€˜what art has been missingâ€™ and nominated for the Artist Extraordinaire Award, Koby has worked with the top names from the creative and music industries. Koby says, â€œXamâ€™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.â€�
Mixing together elements of neo soul, jazz, and pop the Liverpool based singer, songwriter and producer is a truly unique artist. In 12 short months, he has risen to the attention of critics and music fans the world over, been compared to everyone from Dâ€™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 â€“ from Annie Mac and Gilles Peterson to Notion, Dummy Magazine and Afropunk .
XamVolo is half way through a huge arena support tour across the UK with Paloma Faith which culminates in his own headline show at Londonâ€™s Omeara on the 11th April. His debut album All The Sweetness on the Surface is due for release via Universal worldwide in 2018.
Perhaps, beyond the infectious big hits and staggering vocals, itâ€™s the attention to detail and flourishes of genius that will keep garnering XamVolo so many comparisons to the greats of music.
