xyleya perfectly vibrant (Feat. Sun in Leo & Bennett)


Contemporary stylings and passionate lyrics meet with a notably experimental production downpour as Xyleya recrafts the current sound of emo rap.

Explosively designed across an unpredictable two minutes forty-six, perfectly vibrant is, at its core, a song of heartbreak and escapism from turmoil.

On the surface, the meandering layers of detail and changing stages feel like an arbitrary fusion of genres and influences. In reality though, there’s likely to be a link between the ever-evolving soundscape and the emotion and grit of the lyrics and vocal line.

The latter half delves into the pain and heart of the situation with a soul-rock switch of gears, and even welcomes in a new vocal – all in all contributing to this hypnotic sense of lostness amidst an industrial realm of uncertainty and longing.

Fearlessly unsettling in style but ultimately artistic and purposeful, featuring the additional talents of Sun in Leo & Bennett, perfectly vibrant shines fresh light on what’s possible within the new-rap genre. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes Xyleya in the coming months.
