20:30 – BYFYN
21:30 – Xenia Rubinos
Visionary singer and music maker Xenia Rubinos dips in and out of genre and structure to create movingly powerful songs with her O.G. signature sound. Xenia’s powerhouse vocals are at the center of her music which grows from a wide range of influences from R&B to Hip-Hop to jazz all delivered with a soulful punk aura. Pitchfork lauded the radiant singer as “a unique new pop personality” while a profile in The New Yorker described her work as “rhythmically fierce, vocally generous music that slips through the net of any known genre.”
Having released new album Black Terry Cat on ANTI- this June, the album finds Rubinos assisted by longtime drummer Marco Buccelli, who produced the album, and Jeremy Loucas as engineer. The three worked an average of 16-17 hours a day for five months to complete the record which is named after “a giant black scraggly cat” that surprised Rubinos one cold night in Brooklyn.
BYFYN is South East London based producer and singer songwriter Ellie Isherwood. Influenced by the likes of Grimes, Animal Collective and Fka Twigs, BYFYN fuses Ambient Electronic with Synth Pop to create atmospheric, yet catchy tracks.
