The xx - xx

All of them barely out of their teen years and already making such timeless music... Looking at xx in a more intelectual approach, you can say that it's an unpretentious node to minimalism in pop music, using small particles of dubstep, electronics, R&B, hip-hop or rock to create a very personal and austere language that sounds as vulnerable as it is also avant-garde. But then, I actually prefer the more emotional approach to describe the debut album by these four young Londoners: the silent beauty of whispering a touching secret in the most intimate settings. (8,5/10)
