BIOGRAPHY

XO is an indie pop duo based in Normandy, France. Sylvie writes, composes, performs and records songs at home while Greg plays drums, give opinions about the arrangements, make tea and succulent meals!

We've been influenced by such great artists like Elliott Smith, Brian Wilson (the beach boys), Neil Young, The Beatles, Jackson C.Franck...

We try to make our own music guided by this genuine songwriting tradition.

Last year we performed few concerts in NYC with our friend Clément who plays electric bass. It's been a tremendous experience that convinced us to go further and release our first EP called How will you spend your time.

This record is currently under completion and we need your support to achieve it.

WHY SUPPORT US?

We are independent artists : that means we are working like a craftsman who controls as much as possible each step of his production, according to specific expertise, from the conception to the final result, in the margin of  industry standards. The craftsman uses specific tools and machines, has a deontology, defends values...

Our approach of music production is quite the same : with particular attention both in form and in substance we are trying to produce an acoustic, elegant and genuine home made pop.

Finally, because music is a language we don't like practicing alone, we have invited some good friends who are excellent musicians too on few tracks (Christophe Moussier, Clément Landais, Nicholas Thomas, Matthieu Fallet) and solicited two sound engineers we really enjoy work with : Tony Lash and Samuel Navel. JB Darasco take pictures of us and Julien Lafillé works on the artwork.

HOW WILL WE USE THE FUNDS?

Though we became kind of expert in the art of "do it yourself", we don't master some step of a disc realization yet : Greg has been trying to design a CD booklet with an old version of Paint...Sylvie tried to cut a vinyl with a knife and do a mastering with her old Tascam 8 tracks analog tape recorder... Results are amazingly not so bad but perfectibles....

That's why we decided to call some experts to make this part of job. The funds collected will be used to achieve our disc regards to the repartition below :

* MIX & MASTERING : 1200 €
* CD / CASSETTES TAPES DUPLICATION: 600 €
* MERCHANDISING & COMMUNICATION: 200 €
