The XX are worth the hype. --NPR, All Things Considered



The XX are four kids who formed at London's Elliot School in 2005, the south west comprehensive that produced the likes of dubstep enigma Burial, Hot Chip, and Fourtet's Kieren Hebden: But alone The XX stand, not only in the singularity of their influences and sound, but in the universal resonance of their music. Their unique make-up is a second nature marriage of 2009's urban / guitar tribes, in one corner fluttering new wave inspired reverberat.

The XX unique make-up is an inadvertent second nature marriage of 2009's urban/guitar tribes, in one corner fluttering new wave indebted reverberation, in the other, plumes of post-dubstep sub-bass and figuratively, their defining core of rich R&B vocal textures. The enveloping vocal partnership of Romy and Oliver is one that would've dropped-jaws in any decade this century, and set amidst a shivering soundscape of beats and plucks, their bedroom-reared concrete-soul is being justly heralded as the UK's most original and treasured alt. pop artifact of late.
