XX


the biggest selling title in rt history the xx are four precocious 19 year olds from south west london who provide the hushed minimal strokes of young marble giants and early cure but through the minds of a young act obsessed with the rampb turns of ciara and aaliyah having gone so far as to cover the latter's 'hot like fire' as the bside for their first single 'crystalised' and having first been picked up after recording a sensational version of womack and womack's 'teardrops' having signed to xl sublabel young turks earlier in the year the band began to record with a host of the finest producers going including brazilian giant diplo and upandcoming hotshot kwes the four eventually settled with the option of recording at xl's inhouse studio with 'xx' eventually produced by the band themselves this is an inspired broken and uplifting record packed with melancholic charms that recalls the suburban disillusion of the previous burial records and portishead's 'dummy' this is a remarkable debut record from a remarkable new act
