The XX is an up and coming talented band from England. They've only produced one album "XX", and they are working on the second one, which is supposed to be released in 2012. I can't wait.
This will sound shallow, but I liked The XX a lot more before I knew what their "image" was. I stumbled upon their album by accident back "before it was cool" and thought it was pretty good, especially "Crystalised." But when I looked up the video it was quite jarring. Somehow it diminished my enjoyment of the song. Silly but true.
