Xylaroo - On My Way

Sisters Holly and Coco Chant are Xylaroo, an alternative duo with a relaxing, inspirational, and positive sound. The group combines a thought-provoking, socially conscious musical message with harmonious vocal melodies that seemingly only siblings are capable of. Their second single ‘On My Way’ out now via Sunday Best/ PIAS is an upbeat melodic number which highlights their beautiful harmonies and songwriting skills, this is sure to be another smash. Similar to many bands, the pair (Holly aged 25, Coco 23) are a product of their own environment. What makes them totally at odds with everyone else, however, is that their environment has been constantly shifting since day one. You could say they've been “on the road” their whole lives, growing up in Papua New Guinea, Hong Kong, The Philippines, United Kingdom, Switzerland and finally Sri Lanka before returning to London, where they are now based out of. This constant travel in addition to being siblings has, without a doubt, affected the band. “It's only in the last couple of years that we've considered ourselves a proper band,” says Coco. “When you're sisters you don't take yourselves as seriously. You play around in your living room.”

 Xylaroo don't want the messaging of their songs to be set in one timeframe. Rather the themes they care about – love, humanity, philosophy, “conspiracy theories” – are ones that pervade every generation, not just theirs. While Holly's scholastic past makes her aware of political upheaval and social consciousness, she doesn't believe in using Xylaroo for preaching. “We want to write songs that make people think without telling them what to think. I'll read an article about racism and police brutality in America, for instance, and then we'll write about it. But it will be subtle" says Holly. 2016 Will be a big year for this upcoming unique act!
