  • Pure XTC

    Pure XTC

    Synth Pop

    pure xtc formed during an extremely isolating period for Baltimore native, Taylor Hughes. In 2019, she packed her bags and moved to the New York City metro area, living on her own for the first time. Time was spent crying on subways, climbing rooftops, meeting and avoiding new people, feeling extremely fulfilled to feeling like a hollow empty shell. Thus sparked the inspiration behind Taylor Hughes’ debut single, “Ghost.” A haunting electro-pop track inspired by her experience with isolation in a new environment, pure xtc explores the sensation of feeling like a ghost amid the excitement and people of a bustling city. After temporarily relocating to the midwest during the pandemic, pure xtc has intertwined herself in the Kansas City music scene. As a queer artist herself, pure xtc strives to gain visibility and representation for the LGBTQIA+ community through her music.

    Alternative

    Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Asian-American artist Darro is fusing together the strongest and catchiest elements of early 2000s emo and pop-punk to form his own hybrid subgenre of alternative anthems.

    While Darro’s hypnotic instrumentation paired with his smooth vocal range elevates each of his singles to an upbeat soundscape, the rising singer/songwriter has had to walk through hell to get to where he is today. After releasing his debut EP ‘Nostalgia’ in 2017, the then 24-year-old musician was diagnosed with a brain tumor that resulted in surgery and rehabilitation that saw him re-learning to speak and sing.

    Despite his hardships, Darro persevered and utilized his recovery as a means of inspiration to release his debut full-length album ‘Song Of Recovery’ in November 2020. Though met with life’s unexpected difficulties, Darro’s debut garnered critical acclaim on various charts, including ranking at #11 on the iTunes Rock Albums, and became emblematic of his journey as a musician.

    Growing steadier and stronger in his craft while establishing a compelling fanbase seeking the nostalgia of the aughts, Darro has been praised by the likes of Billboard, Medium and Alternative Press. Through his spearheaded dedication, he is single handedly redefining a sonic landscape that was lost to years of genre-bending to create a true-to-form alternative listening experience that will effortlessly earn repeated plays.
