TCXL

Hip Hop // Navan, Meath // He/Him

TCXL has something to prove. A rapper/writer/producer/graphic-designer, he came onto the scene at age 18 with 2020's Da Bollix, a soulful EP that balanced hedonistic lyricism and madcap energy with the occasional glimpses of a world-weary wisdom beyond his years. That project was an unfortunate victim of coming out at the beginning of the pandemic, and was shortly followed by several personal losses. These experiences were an indelible influence on 2021's Sounds & Noises, a more eclectic and elegiac project drawing from a more varied sonic palette, venturing into a cohesive, distorted dream-world fuelled by feelings of societal withdrawal and isolation, born from sleepless nights spent trying to craft a perfect snapshot of his mindset at the time. TCXL is currently developing concepts for his currently untitled third project, with which he hopes to bridge the tonal gap of his first two and take his sound to new levels.
