New Music: Xelli Island

LA-based artist, vocalist and songwriter Lianna Vanicelli (who goes by the alias of Xelli Island) is an independent talent who creates some of the most charming bedroom dream-pop you could imagine.

This is a sound that feels emotive and honest, yet still carries a warm and playful essence which is sure to win you over the moment you press play on ‘FLUTTER’.

“This is a song about our strengths and our weaknesses, and realising what parts of yourself need to heal and evolve. I was in a super vulnerable place when writing this. The relationship I was in was falling apart and at this specific point in time, I believed it was entirely my fault so I was frustrated with myself. I wrote the lyrics one night as a way to self-soothe.”
