XO: Pulling Me Under (feat. Leo Kalyan)
Brilliant. I mean that word in the traditional sense of it's meaning. Sheer aural vividness. Really, - this song has a sense of rich lightness to it that permeates every quivering note. With stark piano plateaus, clattering percussion, and subdued strings, XO colors this electronic backdrop into a lush, organic soundstage. Vocals from Leo Kalyan, provide a layer of distinct seriousness to the tune, while the warbling pads drive us into sonic bliss. Friday plans? Who needs em? I've cancelled them to listen to this song over and over and over and over.
