    XYLØ - "L.A. Love Song"

    XYLØ's signature brand of bittersweet pop has a way of sneaking up on you—crystal clear vocals and subtle, careful instrumentation make for a smooth listening experience, and the West Coast duo have taken their formula to new heights with "L.A. Love Song."

    With a couple of intensely quotable hooks ("live fast, leave a pretty body") and just enough punch to keep things from ever getting morose, these two have further positioned themselves to make the mainstream leap. And with "L.A. Love Song" premiering on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, the gears have already started turning.
