Xelli Island has released brand-new single ‘Bad For You’. You can now listen to it on Spotify, and watch the music video below:
The project Xelli Island is fronted by songwriter and vocalist Lianna Vanicelli. Since the age of 14, she has been a part of several bands and projects. After experiencing conflict within these bands, Lianna found strength and confidence with her solo endeavours, having more creative freedom.
Making the leap from Detroit to Los Angeles in 2017, Lianna was truly focused on her music. Successfully, she has been able to use her experiences of visiting family in the Philippines and her love for nature to conjure up her own unique sound, and finding peace in her music. Her pop style shows her thoughts and feelings of love, life, and society.
‘Bad For You’ is the dreamy pop track that has been missing from your playlist. The breezy vocals combined with the upbeat track is the perfect combination for any mood. The lyrics are truly heartfelt and will take you away from the world for a few minutes! The passion within Xelli’s voice is incredibly apparent, and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us.
When talking about inspirations for her unique sound and thoughtful lyrics, Lianna said:
‘I just feel like we’ve moved so far from nature as humans, so I tend to weave it into lyrics and sounds because it’s still very much a part of us and it’s this really comforting theme in a world where it’s so easy to get caught up in the unnatural things.”
