PYHOF: The xx

2014-08-01 1

If we are to describe the music of The xx in one word, it would have to be “hypnotizing.” Check out our playlist for this week after the cut!

Formed back in 2005, English indie pop trio The xx is composed of Romy Madley Croft (guitar and vocals), Oliver Sim (bass and vocals), and Jamie Smith (beats, MPC, backing vocals). However, they only rose to critical acclaim only about five years later, when their eponymous debut effort won them the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. In 2012, the band released their second and most recent album, “Coexist.”

The xx’s music can go from simple compositions to complex, multi-layered ones, with the lyrics often speaking about the “darker” side of love, if you will. Combine this with the members’ sleek fashion sense and amazing stages and you’ll surely be hooked by how perfectly put together these elements are in no time!
