On her debut record, Have Some Fun, Xuan’s twelve songs fuse garagerock and candy-coated pop intent on melting your heart. From the album’s infectious opener, the Strokes-inspired “Not the Man,” to the “Little Red Corvette”-inspired ballad “Sheila,” somewhere in that collage of break-ups, old cars and treasured moments, Xuan is, indeed, having a whole lot of fun.
Newest single, “Sheila,” opens with quirky pop-ness joined by Xuan’s fresh, youthful and velvety smooth vocals. The track has a heart-on-your-sleeve feel with plenty of cutesy, girl-in-love vibes laced with nostalgia and innocence. We can’t get enough of it.
Have Some Fun is out November 16, via Palo Santo Records.
