Marcel Everett is the name behind the elusive sound that is “XXYYXX”.
From touring round the US (and soon to take some trips around Europe) with the likes of “Giraffage”, to affiliation with the mysterious, up and coming British arts collective, “Last Night in Paris”, it’s safe to say that this 16 year old, (That’s right. He’s. Frigging. 16) has been upsetting and awe-inspiring artists, record labels and ordinary humans alike from all around the globe in the past year.With his ability to warp any sample he comes into contact with, and make the whole outcome unarguably his own, he’s mastered a sound which a lot of musicians study and take years to perfect.
The song “About You”, is one of my personal favourites from the recently released self titled album, and is directed by the equally melancholic “Jeff Vash”, who adds a beautifully synchronised visual for the layered sound of XXYYXX.
