For those of you who aren’t already swaying to this dark emo trio, I would suggest seeing them live immediately. The XX opened up for Hot Chip on their last tour and this time, they have taken to the road as a headliner. Please, take my advice and don’t miss their show if you can help it! I was at their performance this past Tuesday night, in DC, and was absolutely enamored. Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, and Jamie Smith are all simply brilliant when it comes to keeping the audience awake, even when your first instinct is to fall asleep to their soothing lullabies. I was especially giddy with delight when they busted out with Show me love, a cover of the original Robin S. song. I took a little video specifically to share with you VG kids. Enjoy!
