After releasing "-30", their debut single last year, Note Panayanggool and Anya Muangkote bring their passion for music and art to the next level, forming themselves as an EDM duo X0809.
The two girls are prepping up for the release of X, their first EP featuring five songs that fuse electronic drum and analog synthesizer - their reinterpretation of combining the old and new sounds. Note and Anya get involved in every process of this EP making, from composing the songs to giving directions for music videos and visual art works. "We might craft things out from a low budget, but our work is not low-quality," reveals the girls, laughing. The two also unveil that there should be a launch party around the end of February.
