Basic Space

I really, really like the XX. More than anything because since they started writing and performing back in 2005(ish), up to their latest album release xx they have kept their original melancholy style, creating this almost intimate feel to their music that lets you get involved in what essentially is eaves-dropping amongst a chat with two friends.

Look out for them at Reading and Leeds festivals, and supporting Florence and the Machine on her tour starting at the end of September. You can buy the album here from Rough Trade which includes a bonus CD. Whoop.

Here are a couple of live tracks which they played on Steve Lamaq’s BBC Radio show:

The XX – Stars

The XX – Crystalised

    This’ll be nice! I guess I’ll be seeing the xx when I see Florence then.

      Lucky you! It’s basically my dream combination at the moment.
