Xhalisse is a band from Midwestern Australia which is making fresh sounds and going places. Starting off as a solo project by singer-songwriter and producer Sarah O'Malley in 2019, it has since developed into a band with the addition of members Alida Wright, David Jackson and Sandy Jones.
With a diverse range of influences and entirely unique sound, Xhalisse offers music inspired by otherworldly female artists such as Tamaryn, Chelsea Wolfe, PJ Harvey & Warpaint. This is offset with a sprinkling of lighter dreamy moments reminiscent of acts like Lush, La Luz and Hatchie.
The addition of a full band solidifies a distinct sound and musical direction for Xhalisse, which has brought it into heavier and fuller alt-rock territory.
