The XX’s Debut Album

The XX’s self-titled debut has been in my heavy rotation of vinyl for several years now. This young London band masterfully blends bass, guitar, synths, and MPC beat machines to create a dark but soulful indie rock. Female singer/guitarist Romy Madley Croft, and singer bassist Oliver Sim project with gentle R&B influenced voices.

This is a must own album on vinyl. The quality and intimacy of the recording is only supercharged by the stellar performance. Here’s a sample video for those who are unfamiliar with The XX.

The band recently announced some new tour dates in Europe. Let’s hope we will see a new album soon!

Here is a new song by The XX called “Open Eyes.”
