Paris XY to release new single Wytching Hour

Wytching Hour will be Paris XY's 7th single release before the debut album in 2015. 

Following the disturbed psyche of the everyday man, the narrative indulges in debauched temptations of modern society. Take from it what you want, the ambiguity allows every listener to take their own dark path. Lyrics and music taunt each other, a pulsing bassline matched with the chanting vocal line weaves a hypnotic devilled dance.  

"Wytching Hour immediately absorbs you, lures you over to the edge, and gives you a glimpse into the dark recess of Paris XY world. You know something slightly unpleasant is about to unfold, but the music is so seductive, the vocals so enchanting, almost hypnotic, you have to see it through." Backseat Mafia  

Paris XY are supported by BBC Introducing, Radio Eins in Germany and Flux FM.  
Since 2012 Paris XY have developed their unique sound. Combining vocals and guitar with live analogue synths, drum machines and atmospheric soundscapes. Lyricism is brought to the fore, influenced by Joy Division, Radiohead and Edgar Allan Poe, subjected to Smith’s Blues powerful delivery. Orvis' production is rooted in Scandinavian and eastern European inspiration, predominantly Trentemøller, GusGus and The Knife. At Beacons festival and Galtres, Paris XY supported Daughter, XXYYXX and British Sea Power on the Loud and Quiet stage, as well as playing between Morcheeba and Tricky. 2014 has also seen the duo on tour in Germany and Holland in July, showcasing in Berlin, and following that with the Poland dates supporting GusGus on their world tour; 6 soldout shows and a final date playing Berghain Main Club on September 24th.  

March 2015 will see the introduction of their live visual show, premiered at Belgrave Music Hall, Leeds, designed from horror films, medical recordings, Euan Baker's original work and many brief shots of insanity, the show now becomes a whole audio/visual disturbance to your senses. 


Paris XY are also launching a crowdfunding campaign in February, in order to finish the debut album off with the support of the PUBLIC. Staying away from corporate sponsorship and label backing, we aim to finish the album as it is supposed to sound, our own untouched music, it is with the help of our fans that we can realise the record we've imagined for the last 3 years.
