New Music: XOVA

Ska that's good.

XOVA is actually pronounced ‘Crossover’, and the good news is that this text speak is  actually the worst thing about the band, who manage to step outside the badly worn ska template by taking on more reggae influences, plus a little bit of modern hip-hop thinking, producing a horn heavy sound that still sounds fresh. They’re releasing the ‘Soho Road Sessions’, including the track 9 Lives (streaming below), and it has summer hit written all over it… so it’s a shame it’s October really, but they’ll give you some bounce to see you through to next year.
