We first happened across British R&B artist XamVolo in December last year through is video Sins of a Soldier. New track In Love & War carries on the theme of combining romance and militaristic images and we love it.
By Graeme Smith
XamVolo is the master of a good bass line, simple but captivating, providing a bedrock for him to express himself through his smooth vocals and layers of synth. It’s not really like anything I’ve heard before. Traditional R&B elements meets something new age and modern. It’s no wonder that BBC Radio 1 DJ Mistajam has described him as “the future.”
In Love & War is accompanied with a simple animated video which almost feels instructive as to how you should enjoy the track, not that it’s needed, you’ll be nodding your head naturally. Check out In Love & War below.
