Music Monday: The XX


There is, sadly, very little to say about this video. However, I think it is absolutely perfect. Lyrics aside, this song is very simple and gentle, and the video suits it perfectly. Add in the lyrics “I am yours now, so now I don’t ever have to leave”, and you’ve got some truly exceptional.

The XX have a very distinct style- I wouldn’t go as far as to say all their song sound the same but they certainly know what works for them. I really enjoy their music and “Islands” is my favourite song of theirs.

From the album: xx

Released: 17 August 2009

Down at heels, music obsessed girl who works in admin. Frequently found talking nonsense on audio blogs, writing nonsense on written blogs or when the internet is down, talking to herself. Life lurches from one disaster to another, but at least it's amusing. I like cats and rats. My fear is they will one day form an allegiance and take over the world. You saw it here first.
