The XX

The XX

Label: None

The XX are a pop group with a disco edge. I suppose modern parlance would place within the bracket of ‘New Wave’. Whatever pigeon-hole you choose, they have a deeply moving sense of rhythm and timing that maximises the despondency of their laid back lyrics and smooth vocals (as can be heard in their brilliant cover version of Womack & Womack’s 1988 hit ‘Teardrops’).

Listen to: Blood Red Moon, Teardrops, VCR

Sounds Like: Hard to say, but here’s a vague attempt: the instrumentals of Bran Van 3000’s ‘Drinking in LA’ with vocals in the region of Feist and Damien Rice
