Jammerzine has an exclusive interview with the rising musical juggernaut known as x-blu as well as an exclusive premiere of their new video for the track titled ‘Time and Tide’. From the UK to the world with a sound all their own, x-blu is a privilege more than a subject here at Jammerzine. And now the family has grown by two with the addition of Fraser Skimmings (bass) and Tom Bevan (Drums).
With that said, we get caught up with x-blu about their new video dropping tomorrow (embedded below) as well as the changes to x-blu since the last time we talked and the plans for the future with more music as well as live dates.

‘Time and Tide’ Video
With the release of ‘Time and Tide’, x-blu continue the evolution of their musical revolution with a song meant for summer and a video meant for infinite repeat. This definitely shows x-blu’s fun side as well as that beefed up sound planned for a beefed up rhythm section. Could this be where the band is heading? The cool thing about x-blu is you won’t know until that next song. And, that’s the way it should be. But, what we get here is pure fun. A party in each note and a hoopla in the hook.
If you are just getting around to exploring the music that is x-blu, listen to ‘Time and Tide’ first. Let that be your gateway drug. Then go on Spotify and get high.
