Huxlii's world is one where fantasy collides with the everyday. 

 

Sabrina Carrizo Sztainbok, a.k.a Huxlii has been making music since she was fourteen that she describes as "art pop with a punk heart". She originally started off in a riot grrrl inspired band, Pins & Needles, and played bars and venues across Toronto while still underage. Now going solo, she explores complex themes of longing, loneliness and insecurity through conversational lyrics and a melodic bedroom punk style.

 

Huxlii's 2016 EP "Rotten Bananas" details absurd happenings like selling your soul for fries or imagining River Phoenix and Kurt Cobain on a holographic tour together. Taking the otherworldly and meshing it with the mundane is her signature recipe.

vixu is a Chinese-Canadian recording artist, composer, and pianist.

vixu draws from a sultry blend of indie nostalgia, R&B, and post-impressionist piano. With tranquil expression and a taste for harmonic variation, his songs pose a new approach that just as functionally carries a pop song.

supply refers to the psycho-analytic term new supply, referring to a narcissist's excessive need for attention or admiration. The song reflects on roles in a past relationship, the risks of unhealthy interpersonal support and how it connects to self-esteem.
