The follow up to his Gemini vs. Cancer EP last month, Xavier continues picking up momentum with this sultry, coast-to-coast tune. The story follows the New York artist as he laments on a past love during his time in California, a fledging relationship he could read as clear as words on the page but couldn’t quite walk away from.
“New York Times” is a downtempo narrative we can all relate to, a central theme throughout White’s expanding career. From his Our Last Memories EP to now, Xavier has a knack for saying expressing the difficulties of love. With clever lyrics that evoke memories of both the sunny coastal paradise and the chilly metropolis, “New York Times” reminds us that our head and heart don’t always see eye-to-eye.
