Completing his entire career based on alt-R&B where his dark eerie basslines are married to his dreamy vocals, XO is coming back with a new record that will not leave you disappointed. A part in between FKA twigs and James Blake, the singer/producer creates around his music a full idea of dark melancholy accompanied with hopeful signals. He puts so much attention to details that the track is a full expedition from the beginning to the end, always surprising us with every single sound.
He also took some time to release a video co-directed and shot by XO and Beck Clewlow where they decided to show a reflection of his soul thanks to epileptic images of flowers, clouds and visions all over his face and body. The track, like all of his previous singles, remains very personal, as explained by XO himself:
The inspiration for “Waiting Game” came from a very raw, vulnerable place. I feel like I’m pushing boundaries and really letting my guard down to give the listeners a real piece of me for the first time.
