Interview: The X (Video/Audio)

If the Luxembourgish electro-pop duo ‘The X’ were a character in a cyberpunk movie, you’d find them amidst the smoky haze of a late-night after-hour club, dancing their way through a world both euphoric and melancholic.

Their first EP, ‘Some Beautiful Things Come from Dark Places’ was released in June 2023, and seamlessly blends futuristic sounds with nostalgic within their trip-pop domain.

Taking stages at events like Francofolies, Fêtes de la Musique in Luxembourg City and Echternach, Bieder Open Air, and Flow Festival, the duo doesn’t just perform; they beckon audiences into an experiential voyage.

Now, on the precipice of their next sonic chapter, The X is poised to release their second EP, ‘The World Is Burning, Let’s Dance’, on April 13th, 2024, at Kulturfabrik Esch.

This forthcoming instalment promises a musical evolution –a weightier, more intense, socio-critical tone, while retaining its inherent danceable essence. Prepare for an immersive dive into a world where music catalyses change, amplifies expression, and beckons you to dance amidst societal upheavals. The X invites you to experience their sonic revolution.

The World Is Burning, Let’s Dance’ is set for release on April 22nd, 2024, and listeners can experience a taste with our exclusive premiere of the track, ‘Freak’.

We also spoke to the duo, talking about the journey to this point, being free to do what they want, but also getting comfortable with that mindset. We also spoke about what being busy in The X looks like, how they marry the visual side of the band with the sonic side, and so much more.
