Unsere Anmerkungen

You might as well tack another X onto the title of the XX's buzz-building debut. After all, it's essentially makeout music for cool kids; steely quiet-storm soundscapes that redefine R&B for a generation that loves Aaliyah and the post-everything productions of Timbaland as much as freshly-pressed Hot Chip singles and faded Cure LPs. Since they're all barely 20, the four South Londoners in the XX are those kind of kids, yet their music speaks to all of us via torch-song tales of love and longing, as chased with smoke ring synths, billowing beats, skeletal basslines, and guitar riffs that ripple more than a pond that's been pounded by rocks. It's addictive stuff, to say the least — a simple but satisfying album that rewards repeat listens and makes for brilliant background music. Not too hard; not too soft … just the XX, doing their thing as the entire blogosphere looks on with baited breath and erratic pulse rates.

definitiv in meiner top5 für's 2009!!! wunderschöne melodien und stimmmen.

brilliant

It's been a long time that we didn't have something new that wasnt comercial or just a copy of a copy...

This is somenthing new don't let it go, and I hope they will come back soon.

Atmospheric English indie pop group the xx formed in London in 2008 around the talents of Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, Baria Qureshi, and Jamie Smith, when the bandmembers were still in high school. Captivating and cool, the group cites influences that run the gamut from R&B (Aaliyah and Rihanna) to classic alternative rock (the Cure and the Pixies). Built around the duel vocals of Croft and Sim, the group's signature brand of moody, soulful indie rock first appeared on the public radar in...
