The XX - Sunset
We are counting the sleeps like we're waiting for Santa for the new XX to hit store shelves. The reviews for those fortunate enough to get a preview copy are starting to pour in, and they are all glowingly positive. What makes us happy, is that they opted to not stray too far from the formula that garnered them so much success in their self titled debut album. Here, we give you Sunset, which you will recognize as definitely being the sound of the XX. Again we find singers Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim trading verses back and forth with a tight rhthym section to back them up...and the obligatory sparse guitar work. The album, "Coexist," drops September 11th.
