Dark pop duo XVOTO share their new single “Friends”. The track is a punch maximalist pop number that intertwines silky R&B before unearthing some infectious bass patterns. After a chance meeting in a McDonald’s, Jazz Alonso and Saigon Fury developed a bond have have since been working on their music in South London.
The duo’s debut EP is out June 4th.
“For this video I always imagined an aquarium because of the fish lyrics and because I think looking at fish in a tank is a really nice symbol of looking back at a relationship: you’ll always have your take on it and feel you have control over that narrative cause it’s a memory, but the reality is that truth is fluid and moves. You’re not looking at an image, you’re looking at something that’s alive. Then the scenes of us getting tattooed on our backs are symbols for something beautiful that scars you – you might move on from something but it’ll still inform the way you move forward. In the video there’s some cheating, some reminiscing, some beauty and some pain.”
