When a reflective and soulful singer-songwriter from Dorset, Sarah de Warren, crossed paths with Manchester based music producer Feri Gyemant, the result was an unexpected, surprising and transfixing fusion of sound that led to the two forming XTALK. Although both had their respective solo projects before XTALK, Feri and Sarah had a musical connection that they simply couldn't ignore, and instantly began writing songs that pushed genre boundaries, resulting in songs that transport you to new dimensions the instant you hear XTALK's signature heavy beats beautifully and delicately contrasted with Sarah's lush vocals that call to mind hints of Massive Attack, BANKS, and Lamb, while still retaining a sound unmistakably its own. 

Although XTALK recently launched, the duo has already performed in a coveted Kendall Calling festival slot and appeared at Sofar Sounds Sheffield. Their debut single ‘Wasted’ was broadcast  on BBC Radio 1 after huge support from BBC Introducing in Manchester. The duo also performed live on the Introducing show.

XTALK's live shows draw you in with ambient electronic vibes where Feri provides the beats, synths and live vocal mixing with the help of Ableton Live and Push, Sarah sings and plays the keys, and the audience almost always falls into a haze of ethereal yet energising sound that leaves them transfixed the moment the duo begins to play. The future is indeed looking bright for XTALK, as they prepare to release their next single, and are playing a steady stream of impressive venues around the UK and Europe. True to the band name, XTALK will leave all who cross paths with its sound talking for days.


Sarah started writing at the age of 13, but her passion really developed when she moved schools at 14, where her songwriting became a powerful outlet for her feelings. She'd spend hours at the piano, weaving emotive melodies around honest, moving lyrics.
By the age of 18, de Warren had already gained a wealth of experience after performing live around her hometown Weymouth, and so moved to Manchester to begin her music career. Immersing herself in the vibrant music scene of the North West, Sarah began gigging several times a week and created a tangible buzz around her music. Sarah has established herself as a force to be reckoned with as her song, High, reached the Spotify viral charts.

A surrogate Manc and creative whirlwind. Originally from Hungary Feri's musical background was consummated on classical guitar, then evolved via various rock and metal bands in his native Hungary.

Following a move to Manchester he was introduced to the heady delights of club culture and the underground techno scene.

He willingly immersed himself and, after being thoroughly led astray, the logical next step was a move into programming, digital recording and visual art. Feri is now a full-time music producer, working with dozens of notable and recognized musicians globally.
