Xylaroo are Holly and Coco Chant: two sisters, two peas in a pod, two harmonious voices cut only from the same cloth as each other. The girl’s first single ‘Sunshine’ which included a Dolly Parton quote, and the B-side an amazing cover of Arctic Monkeys’ ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ has been getting rave reviews and extensive radio play across all stations.

Their second single ‘On My Way’ out now via Sunday Best/ PIAS is an upbeat melodic number which highlights their beautiful harmonies and songwriting skills, this is sure to be another smash.Similar to many bands, the pair (Holly aged 25, Coco 23) are a product of their own environment. What makes them totally at odds with everyone else, however, is that their environment has been constantly shifting since day one. You could say they've been “on the road” their whole lives. By their early 20s they'd tallied up more air miles than all the members of The Traveling Wilburys put together. Today they're based in Canning Town in London where they share a flat with two other friends.

Xylaroo don't want the messaging of their songs to be set in one timeframe. Rather the themes they care about – love, humanity, philosophy, “conspiracy theories” – are ones that pervade every generation, not just theirs. While Holly's scholastic past makes her aware of political upheaval and social consciousness, she doesn't believe in using Xylaroo for preaching. “We want to write songs that make people think without telling them what to think. I'll read an article about racism and police brutality in America, for instance, and then we'll write about it. But it will be subtle.

The sound of Xylaroo isn't so much in your face as it's a comforting place for you to relax your face when you need some inspiration. Their biggest dreams at the moment are very simple: have songs that sound better than bedroom recordings, score some more free t-shirts from Adidas, continue to make each other smile. Above all, they want to tell stories – their stories. To borrow from the lyrics of 'Sunshine' itself: //All the good is worth the hard shit//. For these two, 2016 holds a lot of the former and hopefully zero of the rest.
