Xi have joined up with 48 Crash records who are starting to pick up some exciting up and coming bands out of Yorkshire. Not your usual mould and there is certainly a variety in the bands that are on this label.
From the Indie-Pop Last Gang to these that are pure Rockers! The band release Faceless, if you are someone that opts for the rip-roaring guitars and a heavy baseline then keep an eye on Xi.
If you can't wait for the release then go and see them on their current tour that they are halfway through.
