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 drum 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.
