XYLØ – Fool’s Paradise

XYLØ have been one of my favourite acts since ever and I always get excited when they’re releasing new music. This time their new single caught me in the midst of my short vacation in Berlin, but as soon as I came back to Italy, I knew I had to catch up with this release. Built around driving piano chords, quickly joined by thumping percussions and soaring electronics, Fool’s Paradise is led by Paige Duddy’s charming vocals and, as lyrics hints stated by the XYLO’s lead singer, is “an anti Trump pop song.” Moreover, the line “I had a bad dream/ your face was on a dollar bill” clearly speaks for itself.
