Meet BEij, a band originally set up by a couple of school friends.
Their latest release, ‘Bad News’ is essentially a funky number, inspired by music from the 60’s and 70’s, but it has a modern indie pop sound to it.
The track is said to be “about pursuing your passions instead of the path that your friends and family see fit.”

It’s Sunday and hopefully the sun is shining where you are.
If not, it certainly will be after listening to ‘Lights On’ by XY&O; an ambient poppy track inspired by Daft Punk and Pharrell’s ‘Get Lucky’.
Based in Cardiff, Wales, ‘XY&O’ comprises of producer Skip Curtis on vocals and production, Tudor Davies on keys and programming, and Nick Kelly on guitar.
The trio was born when Skip and Tudor entered the studio aiming to recreate the “optimistic light of summer that can so often turn dark”.
‘Lights On’ is the second single from the bands first EP titled ‘Shimmer & Shade’ due out later this year.
