There’s something about Ras Xix’s latest self-titled album. Its world-infused, atmospheric tracks are relaxing, soulful. Evoking a surfer’s paradise or high jungle terrace with a 360 view of the city, Rax Xix’s record is an excellent mood-transforming record.
Xix’s voice at times could be a dead ringer for Chris Cornell had a baby with Brandon Boyd especially with on “Intergalactic Love Affair.” Hey, what happens in space, stays in space.
“New Religion” is driving and bounces with Red Hot Chili Peppers sparks, showcasing Ras Xix’s thing…diversity while staying tight and engaging. “Weightless With You” also stands out.
Ras Xix’s music does not take the light road and fills the air with tunes inspired by the beaches of Colombia, the patchwork of Los Angeles and the spirit and the fire of Singapore.
