XEINN – debut album ‚Pride Of The Weak‘ + Exclusive Interview

Hello, thank you for your time, please introduce yourself in a few words!

Hello, thank you for the interview! My name is Alejandro Agudin although I am known by the name of XEINN. I am a 22 year old singer and I am currently living in Madrid, Spain. I’ve been singing professionally for about 6 years, and now I’m promoting my first studio album „Pride of the Weak”. Also, this year I finished a university degree in political science!

Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tour dates, new videos?!

I am currently focused on the launch and promotion of my latest album „Pride of the Weak“, however, I am continuing to compose new songs, using new sounds and stories/ narratives we havent used before! We are very excited to release everything new that we are creating, although, the priority right now is the album „Pride of the Weak“.
As for shows, we plan to return to the stage in September, accompanied by my band playing songs in many clubs! We already have dates and places in mind so keep an eye on my site and socials!

Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!

When something does not come out right, for example, a letter of a song or melody, I can not stop working until I get it, it doesnt matter if 20 hours pass – I do not stop until I am satisfied with what I have done.

The second important thing about me is that my family and friends are necessary in my life. Sometimes I need some disconnection from the world of music so I go to them to have a good time and leave my mind blank. They are very important to me on an emotional level and for stability and peace of mind

Although I have already commented on it and it seems obvious, I am a Spanish singer, however, I sing in English because ever since I was little my musical inspirations have been American or English music.

Another curiosity about me as an artist is that I am always thinking and wanting to get back on stage. I love singing live and seeing how people enjoy what I do. It is an incredible feeling to see so many people looking at you and enjoying your music. I am looking forward to returning as soon as possible.

I always compose at night, it is my time of day to be calm and relaxed, and that is why the darkness and the world of the night helps me compose my songs. It is a very intimate moment where all my thoughts and emotions come out with great ease and where I see everything much clearer.

What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?

I don’t think there is a specific brand that can only be related to my music. By making music so varied I think there are many possibilities since a large part of my songs follow a very careful and elegant aesthetic that could be related to more luxurious clothing, however, another part of my compositions follow a more urban scene, relating to that style of clothing as well.

Do you have bad habits? A guilty pleasure you can’t seem to quit?

If I had to talk about one habit that I could improve, it would be staying up very late at night. For me the night is the time of day to be quiet, compose songs and enjoy the silence and darkness. The night attracts me a lot, it is something that I am really passionate about, however, this causes me to get up late too many times, losing part of the next day, not being able to make plans that I would like to do.

Beside music, do you have any special talents?

I love basketball, not only watching it but also playing it. I have some underground courts in my community and we always go down to play games. Together with my friends and 10 other people, we team up and play for hours. It is a very physical and demanding sport with oneself, and that is why I love it since you have to make an effort to improve – and you have to face not only the other team but yourself.

Being on stage feels like….!

It is a roller coaster of emotions, before the concert, even days before, you are nervous, you want to do your best and not disappoint anyone, so you have a lot of pressure. The minutes before the concert could be the time where you are most nervous since there is little time for everything to start and you have to make a good impresión. However, when the first word comes out of your mouth, little by little you start to leave that tension and pressure, you relax and enjoy more and more, until a point of energy and happiness arrives so great, that it makes you understand why you are there and why you want to dedicate yourself to music – and that is to feel the public sing your songs and watch carefully as you are singing. It is a unique, incredible and indescribable feeling, one of the best feelings in my life. I am looking forward to returning to the stage to be able to enjoy myself with the public after so long without doing a show.

Must Have – and No-Go in your Wardrobe! – Favorite Fashion Brand and Fragrance?

I do not have a single specific clothing brand that defines me, I like to wear several brands, however, I could answer the question of perfume, as I am passionate about perfumes and I have a very specific selection of them. First of all, I use Versace „Eros“ for day to day, it is a very fresh and summery cologne, but if I have to go somewhere at night, like a club, I use Dior „Homme Perfum“, it is a perfect cologne for the night, and that leaves everyone freaking out, and liking it a lot.

9. A question you’d like to answer, but never been asked in an interview before?! + Answer pls

I would like you to ask me what is my favorite song on the album!

Answer: This question is somewhat complicated since I do not have a song that I like above the rest, but some songs on the album are indeed the ones that I am most proud of and I especially like. The first one would be „The Leaving“ where I speak about an emotional drama after a love breakup, being the abandoned one and I speak of human weakness and its inevitability. In second place we have „Runaway“, a song based on seduction, temptation, and psychological games, with incredible sound, quality, and an explosive chorus. And finally, I think „Nothing To Lose“ is a really good song, which mixes funky sounds with a chorus in the pure rock style, a perfect mix that with a great composition makes the song sound really incredible.
