XATIVA – You’re A Mistake

London based Swedish-Ecuadorian singer-songwriter XATIVA announces her first single and video release in two years ‘You’re A Mistake’. Having received praise from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, COLORS, Wonderland & Dummy Magazine for her debut EP ‘If I Am Falling’, this songwriter is going from strength to strength with each release. Teaming up with London born queer filmmaker and photographer Ben Cole (Odunsi, Franz Ferdinard, Boy George, Dolce & Gabbana, SKYN, Vogue), this is a partnership sent straight from heaven.

As for many other people around the world, the pandemic induced lockdowns brought XATIVA periods of prolonged isolation. It was during this time that XATIVA, still grappling with the core subjects of love and loss, began to piece together and record Fly Away, her second EP, at Soup Studios in London with Giles Barrett (Alfa Mist, Nubya Garcia, Moses Boyd).

Speaking about the lead single ‘You’re A Mistake’, XATIVA shares, “A central theme of ‘You’re A Mistake’, and the project as a whole, is the seeming contradiction of the frustration of falling for someone who is wrong for you, but at the same time the powerful feelings of love that still draw you towards them.”
