10 Songs XYLO Listen To In the Studio

XYLO have been captivating us with their serene brand of indie pop for some time now. With the release of their newest America EP they brought their pop chops to the next level, with tracks that effortlessly weave vocals and synths into catchy, cotton-candy perfection. We asked the band to make us a playlist of songs that they listened to when in the studio recording the EP and unsurprisingly what we got back was a playlist full of jams that we can’t get enough of. Check out the playlist below and be sure to grab their new EP!
