“XXX” shows off Sean X as a careful creator of a truly universal, immersive sound one that it is an absolute joy to get fully lost in. 

Sean X – XXX

Sean X delivers a futuristic R&B pop flavor on the surreal swirl of “XXX”. Pitch-shifted vocals adds to the otherworldly presence that the track radiates. Melodies radiate throughout helping to add to the sense of purpose that propels the piece forward. A little akin to Daft Punk’s sci-fi laden album Discovery, there is a certain degree of exploration that helps to bring the whole of the journey together. By far though the true heart emerges from the vocals which have a yearn quality as they pine for something more. Within this romantic aspect, the rest of the piece has its own cleverness about it making sure that it feels just right and sculpted to perfection. 

Nor does he waste any time as he steams ahead with his lyrical prowess. Verses are carefully executed making sure that every word has equal importance as they seemingly waft on through in an infinite space. Layer upon layer enter the fray making sure that it all has equal importance, for the neon hued splendor of the synthesizers gives it an almost cinematic cadence at times. Moments at times offer nods to some sort of long-lost 80s soundtrack, as there is a classic quality to the way that he allows it all to unfurl. Tempos here have a laid-back quality making sure that every single detail matter and matters completely.
