Arizona’s Psych-Cumbia Rock’n Roll outfit is taking their highly praised debut-album ‘Bloodline’ to Mexico’s Vive Latino as well as European clubs and Festivals this spring.
The band has been steadily touring since the album’s release in February 2016, between SXSW’s Levitation and Globalfest appearances, Amsterdam’s Paradiso, Brussel’s Botanique, club and festival shows all over Europe and the US including Lowlands, BlueBalls Lucerne, ArianoFolk Italy, but also at AHA Festival Santa Fe and Green River Fest Massachusetts, later in the year being featured at legendary TV-Festival WDR Rockpalast Crossroas and Crossing Border Den Haag.
The debut album ‘Bloodline’ (Barbès/Glitterhouse, 2016) gained immediate media-attention such as R2, Rolling Stone, Les Inrocks, Q Magazine, Musikexpress, Sounds and Colours, and seeing airplay on KEXP, KCRW, and CMJ amongst others and has been featured as the record of the month on French public radio FIP. Uncut called the album a "haunting, mesmerising stew” and R2 Magazine "an impossible-to-categorise blend of indie, americana and chicha” from a "superbly eclectic outfit”.
XIXA tune in the wild frequency of the Sonoran desert, in glittering, gritty rock’n roll twin lead-guitars blended with psychedelic cumbia. The band hails from the always-flourishing Tucson indie-rock scene where Brian Lopez, Gabriel Sullivan and legendary drummer Winston Watson are also members of the last acclaimed incarnation of Giant Sand and have international credits with the likes of KT Tunstall, Sergio Mendoza, X’s John Doe, Calexico, and even Dylan and Alice Cooper.
In the meantime, the band is recording their upcoming album, scheduled for next fall and getting ready to hit the road again in spring and the summer festivals.
