The duo first found success with their debut track “America,” a hazy pop ballad about love and freedom that was featured in an online PacSun commercial staring Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The internet lit up in response and the track garnered over 1.6 million listens on Soundcloud, as well as reached #1 on Hypemachine. Since then, the band has released three singles – “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” “Afterlife,” and “L.A. Love Song” – with each one garnering millions of listens and contributing to the buzz around the band. At the end of 2015, XYLØ finally decided to sign a major label deal with Sony’s Disruptor Records.
XYLØ released their debut EP America in early 2016 before taking over SXSW where they performed numerous showcases including Disruptor Records, NYLON, FLOODfest, Beautiful Buzzz, iHeart Media and more. Songs from the debut EP have garnered over 25 million streams.
