An EP of contrasts

Aussie duo CVIRO and GXNXVS (pronounced as ‘cairo’ and ‘genius’) takes the art of R&B and smudges it with their own hues of trip hop, indie pop, and experimental genres with their EP Now You Know. The best way to describe this record is that it’s anti-basic and every track feels like a complete flipside version of its predecessor. Stream below:

Now You Know is us showing the world where we’re coming from, and where we’re going – sonically, lyrically, stylistically. It’s a statement of intent – to the people riding with us – Now You Know we’ll never let you down. And to the people who aren’t fucking with us, well Now You Know that we’re not going to stop.” Shared the duo. “The EP is all about contrast – it’s diverse and it’s musicality, but consistent so you get a chance to really know us. It’s nostalgic, but modern. The lyrics are melancholic, but the beats want to make you dance. Life isn’t one-dimensional, and neither is our music. And to anyone who’s getting tried of every R&B artist sounding the same, Now You Know that a change is coming.”
