Xylouris White's upcoming long player, The Forest In Me, flows freely through sprawling landscapes of discreet harmonics and cathartic bursts of melody. George Xylouris' Cretan lute and Jim White's drums track their progressive compositions though a spacious sound-field, rambling today down a well traveled path entitled "Red Wine."
Oh, red wine – is there anything that hasn’t been said or sung about you? The Xylouris White varietal is full bodied and pours easy, with generosity. Measures of Greek dance song squeeze through Giorgos' guitar lines, while Jim's stolid-yet-spare drum parts play against type, establishing a minimalist framework that eventually draws Giorgos out into a disarmingly open space. Deep and deconstructed music that will also get ‘em up at weddings!
The video for "Red Wine", directed by Anna White, provides the perfect backdrop for the song with its dynamic portrait of nature, flawlessly capturing the energy of life and activity in the outback.
