Xondra Releases Debut EP ‘Tedious & Brief’

New York-based singer and songwriter Xondra shares her much anticipated EP, ‘Tedious & Brief,’ out today on all streaming platforms

Filled with emotional intensity and introspective songwriting, ‘Tedious & Brief’ is an exploration of what it means to be a woman trying to survive in a man’s world. Over the course of the EP’s six tracks, Xondra reconciles with childhood and past trauma. It’s a harrowing but ultimately empowering journey.

“Writing this EP helped me mourn the versions of myself I can never get back to. As a survivor, I am not the same person I was before I had certain experiences. I have had to make peace with my pain and give myself the space and time to rebuild myself from the ground up,” Xondra says. I love who I am now. I am stronger, kinder, and more full of life now than I have ever been. Writing ‘Tedious & Brief’ helped me find my light again and reignite it after thinking for the longest time that it might be gone for good. I hope it can serve as a reminder to send love to all past and present versions of you. May we all continue to move forward and heal the parts of ourselves that are still hurting.”

About Xondra
Xondra (she/they) is the musical moniker of Alexondra O’Connell. Born to Cuban/Puerto Rican and Irish parents and raised on Long Island, New York, she found her love for music and songwriting at a young age. As a child she would sit in front of the radio for hours, writing down lyrics that struck a chord with her and creating new songs out of those lyrics. In her teens, she started to write her own songs as a means to process her growing pains and, at 18, Xondra headed to SUNY Purchase’s Music Conservatory to further hone her skills and refine her sound.
