Still sounding fresh today! The XX provide the hushed minimal strokes of Young Marble Giants and early Cure but through the minds of a young act obsessed with the r&b turns of Ciara and Aaliyah, having gone so far as to cover the latter's Hot like fire as the b-side for their first single, Crystalised and having first been picked up after recording a sensational version of Womack and Womack's Teardrops. Having signed to XL sub-label Young Turks earlier in that year the band began to record with a host of the finest producers going, including Brazilian giant Diplo and up-and-coming hotshot Kwes the four eventually settled with the option of recording at XL's in-house studio, with 'XX' eventually produced by the band themselves. This is an inspired, broken and uplifting record, packed with melancholic charms!
