XXYYXX – About You
Orlando based XXYYXX is a 17 year old producer… that’s right — Seven Fucking Teen!!! Anyway, back to the song, “About You” is a sexy little jam with a tight, slow snare over some ambient rolling synth-bass. Its a patient song, and takes its time to develop and when it does, the pay off is huge. XXYYXX claims to be ‘just learning’, but this haunting, reverse voice-sampled song shows a ton of promise.
The music just gives you this feeling of being suspended in black, dark, cold space, just a man and his thoughts, its solitary, but its not necessarily terrifying. As for the video, much like the song, its an uncomplicated visual affair, but strikingly beautiful. We get some women smoking in slow mo, and when the crescendo of the song happens a fox face max oozing slow motion smoke out of every crack and crevice. Its simple, its beautiful, and it fits the song perfectly. Be sure to check it out.
