+ Jemima Coulter
Xenia Rubinos’ music fuses Latin rhythms, downtempo R&B and electronic pop experimentations.
The Brooklyn-based musician pours her effervescent spirit into her work, lending a tangible emotive and charismatic essence to each of her songs.
Rubinos’ latest release Una Rosa came after a period when she wasn’t sure if she’d be able to continue making music. And it was through creating this record that she came out the other side, reconnecting with herself and music.
Una Rosa sees her sound infused with more of an electronic palette and draws more overtly on her Latinx heritage.

“In its shades of love and grief, Una Rosa sounds like life as it arrives. It’s also a record steeped in Caribbean texts that have influenced Rubinos’ musicianship, alongside the jazz, hip-hop, and R&B that shaped her first two albums.”
Raised on classical music in Hampshire without context for what was popular, 24-year-old Bristol-based artist Coulter has developed a sound meticulously their own.
The songs on their debut solo album Grace After a Party exist in an impressionistic reverie, somewhere between a hallucination and the waking world. Throughout the record, we hear Coulter reaching beyond themselves toward a tender yet magical universality.
