The XX

Fast becoming one of my favourite bands and I haven't had one of those in a looooooong time but these young creative used-to-be-a-four-piece and now trio from South London have been keeping me company for the last couple of weeks and what can I say...I love them! Cool, atmospheric 80s, guitar driven and seductive boy/girl vocals, songs about interpersonal relationships delivered with such seriousness but sensitivity at the same time make this record truly special to say the least. Dressed all in black, sullen faces....I only wish these guys were around when I was a teenager. This is music best enjoyed with your eyes closed.
Favourite tracks include Islands, Infinity and Crystalised.
