Meet X&Y - your new favourite band.
X&Y are Ben (22, keyboard and vocals), Ash (23, guitar and vocals) and Rhys (22, drums); three friends who have come together to write some brilliant songs.
They have just released their fantastic debut EP ‘Experience X’. The EP contains three tracks: ‘Breathe’, ‘Rocket Science’ and ‘This Love’ - all of which have attracted a wave of acclaim from bloggers and music critics.
The band wrote and produced lead track ‘Breathe’ with Tinashé Fazakerley (Rationale) and Anu Pillai (Freeform Five, Roisin Murphy).
‘This Love’ was produced by Secaina Hudson, and ‘Rocket Science’ saw the band climbing the Hype Machine charts as they teamed up with Iain James (Read All About It - Emeli Sande, Nick Jonas, Ella Henderson), and Adam Argyle (James Bay, Gabrielle Aplin, Elle Eyre).
The band have been writing and recording with a plethora of the great and the good from the pop world, and stunning audiences throughout London with their live performances.
