xxyyxx is the moniker of 15-year-old Orlando musician, Marcel Everett. Marcel has an interest in chillwave, dubstep, and experimental indie, having played guitar for 5 years with no traditional training. He labels his music as self-proclaimed Fro-fi, an off-shot of the chillwave movement.
Marcel Everett is constantly changing his style. Marcel is heavily influenced by 80s new wave and r&b, maintaining interest in vinyl and old cassette collections. He's likened to How to Dress Well, Toro y Moi, and Washed Out.
Marcel started out in 2009 as a guitarist for many local bands including experimental hardcore band Esmeralda. His bedroom projects slowly turned into his main focus, releasing songs under the name of beardance. Now renamed as xxyyxx, he is signed to Relief in Abstract Records with his first album, Still Sound, newly available in July 2011.
