Following the release of ‘Divine Disaster’ earlier this year, XO (Sunil Heera) returns with his new single ‘Waiting Game’, taken from his first full-length project due early 2017.
XO’s signature dark ethereal beats and warped R&B style flows through the ‘Waiting Game’, which also see him take centre stage on the vocal front. Naturally fitting for a deeply personal song- XO says “ The inspiration for “Waiting Game” came from a very raw, vulnerable place. I feel like I’m pushing boundaries and really letting my guard down to give the listeners a real piece of me for the first time”. ‘Waiting Game’ is a melancholic journey from start to finish, reflected in the video co-directed and shot by XO and Beck Clewlow.
With a musical knowledge that belies his youthful 21 years, XO has had an enviable start to his short career. He’s garnered support from the likes of Billboard, The Guardian, NME and more. 2016 has seen XO lend his production and writing skills to JONES, Leo Kalyan, Snakehips and more – plus a recent collaboration with Monki & Friends, continuing to put his name on the map.
