XYLOS is a five-piece electro-pop band from New York who has gained praise and spins from KEXP, KCRW and MPR’s The Current. In addition, the New York Post named them as a “band to watch” for 2011. Well, we’ve been watching and this year has seen the band release their self-titled debut full-length album on top of tour dates with such acts as Oberhofer, Tapes ‘N Tapes and most recently Trentemøller. With the bands 80’s inspired production coupled with vocal harmonies reminiscent of ABBA and Kate Bush – it’s no surprise that the New York Press has referred to them as a “female-fronted Hot Chip”.
