A passion for exploration comes naturally to Xylouris White, the ruggedly visionary duo formed of Cretan lute player George Xylouris and revered Australian drummer Jim White. For their debut album, 2014’s ‘Goats’, Xylouris White compared themselves to the titular animals, wandering fearlessly through rough-hewn terrain. Two years later, they showed how far their horizons could reach on 2016’s majestically expansive ‘Black Peak’, named after a mountain top in Crete.

Just 15 well-toured months later, the duo’s exploratory instincts drive them further onwards still on their third album, ‘Mother’, released via Bella Union and named to denote ‘new life’. As Xylouris puts it, “‘Mother’ is the extension of ‘Goats’ and ‘Black Peak’. Three things, all part of a whole. Goats are mothers, Zeus was raised on Amaltheia’s milk, Black Peak is Mother Earth… Mother Earth is the mother of everything.”
