Luxembourgish electro-punk duo The X released their latest video for the track Freak on March 25th, 2024. The track is taken from their upcoming EP The World Is Burning, Let’s Dance which is set for release on April 22nd, 2024.

Speaking about the new video, the band have said: ‘Sometimes you just feel like an outsider, a misfit, a freak. We’ve all been there. In times gone by, individuals that appeared in circus sideshows were called “freaks”. So, given the current the status quo of our society, we’re basically all freaks!’

If the Luxembourgish electro-punk duo The X were a character in a cyberpunk movie, you’d find him amidst the smoky haze of a late-night after-hour club, dancing their way through a world both euphoric and melancholic. Their first EP, Some Beautiful Things Come from Dark Places, released on June 9th, 2023, seamlessly blends the futuristic with the nostalgic within their trip-pop domain.

Taking stages at events like Francofolies, Fêtes de la Musique in Luxembourg City and Echternach, Bieder Open Air, and Flow Festival, the duo doesn’t just perform; they beckon audiences into an experiential voyage.

Now, on the precipice of their next sonic chapter, The X is poised to premiere their second EP, The World Is Burning, Let’s Dance, in the live arena on April 13th, 2024, at Kulturfabrik Esch before a wide release on April 22nd, 2024. This forthcoming instalment promises a musical evolution – a weightier, more intense, socio-critical tone, while retaining its inherent danceable essence.

Prepare for an immersive dive into a world where music catalyses change, amplifies expression, and beckons you to dance amidst societal upheavals. The X invites you to experience their sonic revolution.
