The xx: music review

who: Romy Madley-Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith

from: London

sound: moody electronica. breathy, exquisitely achy vocals, swirling keyboards and dreamy guitar chords merge to create gorgeously murky ambient-trance beats and melodies. minimalist yet deep and complex.

album: Coexist out September 11

label: Young Turks/ XL

my picks:
“Chained:” “Separate or combine/ I ask you/ One last time/ Did I hold you too tight/ Did I not let enough light in”
“Swept Away”
