Sisters Coco & Holly blend simple-yet-oh-so-catchy melodies with striking harmonies and lyrics. The band got started in Maidstone, Kent in the mid-2000s but its roots and branches can also be traced to the places the girls grew up in and later lived: Papua New Guinea, Hong Kong, Philippines, Sri Lanka and now east London.
Xylaroo found its feet in the Medway music scene doing gigs and open mics as a two-piece. The band soon caught the eyes of independent label Sunday Best records. They were signed by Sunday Best in 2015 and released their debut album “Sweetooth” in 2016. The album was met with rave reviews, and lead to Xylaroo’s songs receiving radio play – as well as invites for interviews and acoustic sessions – by the likes of Dermot O’Leary (BB2), Steve Lamaq (BBC6), Edith Bowman (Virgin), John Kennedy (Xfm) and Clive Anderson (BBC 4)
Over the last few years the band has supported Mika, Frank Turner and Pup on tours around Europe. They have also supported Will Varley and Matt Berry and the Maypoles on UK tours and Meilyr Jones. The band has spent this year and the end of 2018 recording songs for their upcoming album “Turis.” The band still plays as a two piece arrangement but more often than not the sisters are now accompanied by guitarist Joe Singleton. For some performances the ensemble can swell to a five-piece arrangement with added drums and bass.
