Free of the electronic beats and walls of synth sound, this song allows Xelaine to get to the core of her craft.

Xelaine has always been comfortable and confident with propulsive, powerful and mature vocals that appear to come from another time. Her soaring vocals are distinct from what is heard on radio today, and she is not in pursuit of that ever evasive crossover appeal. Xelaine fully displays her vocal talent in the one place where those with the gift shine, and that is on balladry songs like this one.

The sparse acapella arrangement gives Xelaine ample space to showcase her range and flare for the dramatic on a tune that finds her trying to come to terms with her feelings and emotions, transition between love and devotion to outright denial in contrasting flourishes. Her music strikes with such conviction that it places the listener right in the center of her situation.

She sings with a rich soulfulness, while writing from a place of deep authenticity. Drawing from personal experiences, she obviously considers the songwriting process her therapy. She believes it, and sings it the way she does because it’s probably real.

Here on ‘DETOX’ [acapella version] she tackles the trials of romance, the obstacles of allowing it to thrive, and the pains of letting it go. This is an empowering song by a songstress mapping out her options, and it really works. Showing off her range and allowing her vocal capability to build with intensity within the arrangement’s empty spaces.

They say timing is everything, and now, with ‘DETOX’ [acapella version], this may actually be Xelaine’s moment of breaking into the mainstream as the most soulful indie songstress out here!
