Singer/songwriter Xoe Wise has proven her versatility and strength as a songwriter over the past few years by recasting her songs in various formats. Her 2010 debut caught a lot of attention for its dreamy spin on acoustic Folk Pop, while 2012’s Archive of Illusions found her losing some of the rootsy elements for a more spacious, celestial Pop minimalism. But when 2013’s Breakfast EP came out, Wise took a hard left run, exploring the world of Electro Pop with great results. With this year’s Racecar Orgasm: Foreplay EP, Wise (who’s also a member of MidPoint Synth Pop act Kinky Love) collaborated with various Electronic producers to create an impressively diverse Electronic EP that still retains the essence of her catchy and enchanting songwriting style.
