Boasting smoky vocals with the side-eyeing attitude of RnB, the cool-headed swagger of a seasoned rapper, splashes of her Spanish mother tongue with some jazz licks thrown in, more is more with Xenia Rubinos.
Debuting with Magic Trix LP in 2013, the thrilling and thoroughly underrated offering was a jazz-funk leaning kaleidoscope of sound and culture. Returning in 2016 with Black Terry Cat, stand out single Lonely Lover brings castanets and a four beat intro indebted to N.E.R.D. before she drips her sultry melancholy all over it. Praised by Pitchfork for her “sharp ability to make pressing issues about identity and society into funky, exhilarating music”, Xenia Rubinos music is the sound you need.
Playing this Birthdays show in October, you'll catch an affection for her infectious stage presence.
Presented by Bird On The Wire.
This is an 18+ event.
