The xx: Islands

The xx is finally releasing a new album next year and I am rather excited for it. The band has been a favorite mine ever since late 2010, when I first heard their music. Their debut album “xx” is always on repeat.

“Islands” is the best track from their debut album with its amazing guitar riff and Jamie xx’s┬ádrum loop. Both Romy and Oliver’s vocals create a seductive tension, as they go back and forth throughout the song. The music video is even a sight to see, with its use of choreography. Check it out.
