XamVolo returns with his vibe-heavy new single ‘In Love & War,’ a cross pollination of soul, electronica and R&B – which foreshadows a forthcoming EP. It was premiered by Complex, and is available now. Watch here
Overseeing every element of the music XamVolo describes it as “a messy mind over raw, dark jazz grooves”. He’s unique music stylings and sound has seen him compared to many contemporary soul greats while carving out a niche of his own as the rising star of UK Neo-Soul.
His debut album ‘All The Sweetness on the Surface’ is powerful and emotive collection of song writing mastery and a testament to XamVolo’s cinematic method of creating worlds within his music, it tells a neo-noir story of a protagonist who finds themselves confronted with a hive containing a black honey substance that can grant them their every desire. The album is split into two parts, life before the discovery of the black honey and the grim consequences of life after, in which we’re shown the dark side of getting everything you ever wanted at the click of a finger. The bulk of the album was produced by XamVolo himself, but also sees collaborations with heavyweight producers AV and Paul Phamous (Frank Ocean) as well as Bruno Major, Fred Cox and Freddie Joachim.
