Albanian born XHOANA X takes her dark, Eastern European heritage very seriously. From an upbringing of one of the most tolerant spiritual cultures in the world, comes a unique style of art, with a mixture of freedom, rebellion and heroism.
The relaxed form of culture from Albania is the driving force here. You are in the darkest little corner of your room. And yet, this is where you find that you are most comfortable. Although perhaps you also find yourself a bit surprised at the ease in which you exist here.
XHOANA X shares, “Deepest Pleasure started as a mood song for when you’re feeling like you’re ‘That Bitch’ and exuding a confidence that says ‘I’m feelin’ myself, don’t fuck with me, cuz I’m not asking for your opinion.’ It’s like a Harley Quinn character type song. As bad as you want to be, and owning it! Playful, petty, in your face and a lil bit psycho. The whole EP has a Villain concept so this fits.. while I was writing there were a bunch of serial killer mags in the studio as well as all those shows streaming so felt super inspired to be twisted, but in a fun tongue-in-cheek way.”
