Xavier Keeps The Flame Stoked With ‘Marooned Again’
Xavier is on fire, and his blistering new single “Marooned Again” is the hip hop/rock gem we’ve been waiting for! This one is a gripper, and the multiuse of many genres keeps the flame stoked from beginning to end.
A monstrous vocal sample opens the song, which lays atop a dreamy instrumental. The overture is dissimilar to many other tracks in the game, and if you dig deep enough, you’ll find a plethora of sounds that combine to make it the powerful opener it is. In addition, there is a futuristic glockenspiel that stands out alongside a synth hook.
Suddenly, the beat drops, and we’re in the deep end, with Xavier going for the microphone with zeal! He is passionate, and his energy is visceral, resulting in a thrilling adventure. He talks about being alone, almost as if he’s stuck on a deserted island. Given the lockdown periods of the last few years, his narrative is prevalent and one that many will find comparable.
Everything in the song is energising musically. The beat has a hip hop feel, but it also has a drum and bass edge. It isn’t your typical hip hop track, either. Moreover, Xavier incorporates rock elements, and the power spills out of the ether with sharp hooks and crushing crescendos that keep the ears engaged throughout the song.
Overall, we will be keeping this one close for quite some time; great work, Xavier!
