Cardiff’s finest, XY&O, have been teasing fans for several weeks with the debut of their much-anticipated single, “Low Tide,” and now the wait is finally over! This catchy, upbeat song perfectly encapsulates the feeling of summer romance, conjuring up images of blissful days spent mingling by the beach and lazing in the midday sun. The poignant lyrics glide smoothly across the gentle pop melody, creating the perfect balance of glitzy indie-rock and delightful dance-pop.
“Low Tide” is the first single to be released from the band’s forthcoming EP, Shimmer & Shade, which is due out in the next coming months. With their playfully charming rhythms and polished lyrics, XY&O have created a sound that is somehow both familiar and unique, all at the same time. If “Low Tide” is any indication of what’s come, we can expect big things from this up-and-coming UK group.
