There is nothing ordinary about Xenia Rubinos. The Afro-Caribbean, Brooklyn-based songstress and composer channels a blend of Erykah Badu, Regina Spektor, and St. Vincent. Mixing punk and soul, Rubinos sings about plucking eyebrows and racial divides with a smoky elegance that defies genre. Released in 2016, Rubinos’ sophomore record Black Terry Cat speaks to her self-awareness and willingness to question identity with a swift, neo-soul vibe.
