Xavier & Ophelia
Xavier & Ophelia
Real Life Music

Dave Tough and DeAnna Moore make up Xavier and Ophelia. Their debut is mellow and mostly very touching pop.

"6 Billion Lonely People" is a song that uses Moore's vocals well, recalling Edie Brickell at her best. "Chateau Marmont" is a catchy number that recalls Saint Etienne in its summery haze. "Passing Train" is equally lovely, a folksy melody setting the scene for a lullaby in blue. Moore's serene vocals contribute to a great song.

"Use Somebody" is a version of the Kings of Leon song, done in a dancey mode and it sounds very good. It's a lovely debut.
