‘You Are Why I Am Invisible’ starts in what is becoming a trademark for XXYYXX, lush filtered drums, corkscrewed vocals set to a hazy Hip-Hop inflected beat. But what sets this track apart from his other offerings is its lightness. The chords played out on the piano and the joyful vocal sample of Sarah Vaughn’s ‘Stardust‘ pierces through the trudging beat and illuminates the track like rays of sunlight smashing through cumulus clouds.
It’s encouraging to witness the rise in popularity XXYYXX has been experiencing over the past few months (a quick look at the numbers on his Soundcloud will affirm his growing fanbase). When you consider his age (16) and in turn how long he’s been doing this for, it’s a pretty safe assumption that he’ll continue to improve and grown.
Make sure you catch him playing C.A.M.P. on the London leg of his european tour this September.
