, The XX – Crystalised

Despite being on the radar since January or so, ‘Crystalised’ is the debut single from excellent Londoners The XX (no relation to the XX Teens). I listened to all the tunes on their myspace twice after a hectic week taking in 7 gigs in 5 days – Camera Obscura, Jeff Lewis, MSTRFRFT, Daedelus, IMRO Showcase, R.S.A.G and ASIWYFA so The XX was the perfect chill-back soundtrack to counter the madness. I wish they didn’t look so sad in the video though.
