A.G. Cook continues to rule 2020 with jolting new single “Xxoplex”, announces live streaming event

After announcing Apple, his second album of the year, A.G. Cook has shared another piece from his much shorter forthcoming project, a track titled “Xxoplex”. It follows the electro-acoustic single “Oh Yeah,” released late last month. 

In a year where the phrase “expect the unexpected” has been more true than ever, PC Music founder and all-of-a-sudden prolific producer, A.G. Cook, has managed to keep his listeners on their toes amidst the humdrum with his infectious and chaotic compositions. “Xxoplex” kicks this devised chaos into full gear.

With its face-melting supersaw synth lead, “Xxoplex” would have fit right at home within Disc 3 of the 2.5 hour-long 7G, and is precisely what you’d expect coming from a producer who has helped create some of the most forward-thinking pop music these past two years. 

Watch the dizzying visual for “Xxoplex”, created by frequent PC Music collaborator Timothy Luke: 

As we get closer to the release of Apple, Cook has also shared news of “Appleville”, a virtual livestream event, scheduled for September 12. The event will feature Charli XCX, 100 gecs, Clairo, and of course, Cook himself. About the event, Cook explains:

“[Appleville] is a tribute to live computer music in all its forms. A pastoral escape in the comfort of your own home, an infinite green field where you can sit back and watch some of your favourite musicians grapple with the limitations of time & space. 

Apple is out September 25 and can be pre-saved and pre-ordered Here. Don’t forget to give Cook a follow on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook.
