VIDEO DEBUTS VIA BLACKBOOK MAGAZINE
After working his way to become one of Australia’s most exciting up-and-coming producers with over 20 million Spotify streams and three HypeMachine #1 positions under his belt, Xavier Dunn is now ready to make his mark as an artist in his own right, kicking off 2018 with new single “Isic Tutor.”
Debuted via Blackbook Magazine, Dunn notes the single as an “ambient earworm…inspired in part by the ebbs and flows of a tumultuous relationship and in part by the strange wisdom of Isic, an AI character from the video game Battleborn.” Written and produced by Xavier, Blackbook describes the track as “haunting” and go on to say it is a “paradigm of ethereal neo-soul music (think Sam Smith crossed with The Blue Nile), all gossamer atmospherics, languorous comportment and Dunn’s smooth visceral falsetto.”
Cole Bennetts (Entropico), who directed the video, explains to Blackbook, “‘Isic Tutor’ musically explores the themes of unrequited love and I wanted to introduce a motif that is representative of that theme. I thought an all white rubix cube worked rather nicely; no matter how hard you push and pull, the puzzle can not be solved, the answer is right in front of you…”.
