Music

We’re always seeking out fresh sounds, new tunes, and the people making them. At Xiox we’re looking to introduce our readers to an eclectic mix of up-and-coming artists from across globe in all genres.

To us a good submission is one with great production, as in the quality of the recording and mixing is at a high level. If we pop your song into a playlist next to some of our favorite artists, it won’t stand out, and instead fits right in. Beyond that, we’re looking for artists who have an intriguing style and make us want to hear more. Ideally, you’ll have a finished EP out along with strong promotional or Album imagery and have played some live shows of said EP. Lastly, anything else that makes you stand out the better. If you make cool music videos or have some great photoshoots, we want to see and hear about it.

When submitting to us please include:

-Band/Artist Name

-Link to a soundcloud song or set and Song credits
