Xelli Island has been compared to a more pure pop version of Grimes and I definitely hear that. In her latest infectious single “Bad For You”, the singer shows her intense desire for an object of affection. Her accompanying visuals show vast desert landscape highlighting the cinematic soundscapes she crafts.
“Bad For You” features unique vocal arrangements over trip hop inspired soundscapes. The track showcases what Xelli Island does best, create a pop tune that is equally innovating yet relatable. The single is off of her upcoming EP set for release later this month. We can’t wait to hear what is next from this indie pop priestess.
Take a watch to “Bad For You” and escape to your own desert paradise.
