The countdown is on until Australian audiences experience the full Xanarchy effect as California’s enigmatic new face in hip-hop Lil Xan clocks up his first trip to our shores as part of the official Splendour in the Grass sideshows, with massive all ages shows at Festival Hall in Melbourne & Enmore Theatre in Sydney this July.
Arriving in a white-hot flurry of hard earned hype, Xan has enlisted inner-west Sydney’s very own unapologetically vicious and volatile hip-hop group Triple One to lead the charge with their brash raps and haunting hooks, setting the stage alight as their demonic spirit comes to life in fiery form.
Triple One have accumulated a cult following, with signature singles ‘Doozy’ and ‘Overflow’ surpassing 1 million views on YouTube. They also boast a strong global presence with 380,000 monthly Spotify listeners tuning in from North America, Eastern Europe and their own native Australia.
In 2018, the group followed it up with their most diverse offering yet in The Naughty Corner EP, spearheaded by sadistic lead single ‘Redline Reaper’ and the daintier ‘Tarlo.’ The latter was added to rotation on triple j Unearthed and full rotation on triple j, gaining additional praise from FBi Radio, Purple Sneakers, Pilerats, Highsnobiety and more. In June, Triple One were crowned the triple j Unearthed Feature Artist of the Week.
Lil Xan has teamed up with Charlie XCX to release the latest video for their collab track ‘Moonlight’, lifted from his debut album TOTAL XANARCHY. The record features spots from the likes of Charli XCX, Diplo and 2 Chainz, and has enticed devotion from millions of young Americans. Clocking up nearly 1 million views in its first 12 hours of release, lead single ‘Betrayed’ laid the foundations for Lil Xan to become one of 2018’s most popular new artists.
