When the first thrilling wave of racially diverse roots-reggae and ska bands burst out of the Midlands in the late 1970s and revolutionised Britain’s musical and cultural landscape, the country was facing economic depression, massive social unrest, a lack of faith in the political system and, come 1982, an overseas crisis and a pointless war in The Falklands. It seems that little has changed in the interim. . From Birmingham, numbering six in their ranks, XOVA are multi-racial, multi-generational masters of a vibrant and muscular rocking-roots sound that harks back to the sound and vision of the past, fired up by social and political unrest issues as well as affairs of the heart. But they are also the sound of 2013, fusing their Pop/rock-reggae base with the breadth of the modern world ska, Indie, dubstep, blues, Motown and folk, infused with protest and pain, but also hope. 2013 see’s them appearing on TV in the USA, as NBC TV NEW YORK flew in to film them in December 2012 for filming early 2013, and more UK support slots with The Spin Doctors, The Beat and The Selector confirmed in between there own dates, .
