WIRES!WIRES! is an experimental electro music project by artist Xavier St. Valentine. Originally, St. Valentine's one-man-band was known as XX, and after a few single releases and one EP changed the name to WIRES!WIRES! and started moving around the east coast, working on his first album, DOPE POP. Under this new name (also known as W!2) St. Valentine has released a total of four full-length albums, four EPs and several singles within the past three years. As one could tell from this number, he is constantly working on new material.
W!2's music style could be best described as dark, brooding, and violently sexual. Heavy, but simple beats accompany minor keyed melodies and chords. Lyrically, W!2 deals with several personal issues centering in on drug abuse, suicide, mental illness, sexual deviancy, and generally disturbing topics all sung about romantically, and because of this, W!2's large amount of grotesque imagery and sexual acts on stage has become a sort of trademark for the music.
