It's been awhile since I've listened to a band and their album consistently. This all changed when I came across The XX this past summer. The south west London band made NME's (the British equivalent to Rolling Stones magazine, if not better) The Future 50 List. The band has already toured with Florence+The Machine (another great act to check out) as well as the U.S leg of the Friendly Fires tour. Their songs are dark, moody and brilliant, featuring both male and female vocals. The original state of their songs are already amazing enough, but the remixes that have surfaced the net just add more of an edge. Their music is already spreading like wildfire across the globe and I can't wait to hear more from them.
This isn't the original video or version of the song but this remix is one of my faves at the moment and it's also accompanied by a sweet Godard clip.
