The XX is a great new U.K. band with really laid-back but (for me at least) still powerful music. I've had their debut on repeat after getting it on Friday, and was lucky enough to unexpectedly get free tickets from a friend to see them tonight. In a synagogue no less! The intimate atmosphere was just perfect, the male singer adorably soft-spoken, and the music even richer than the recording. The video above is for their single "Crystalised." My current favorite off the album, though, is "Shelter," which doesn't have a real video yet.
PS - I welcome new music recommendations anytime. Thanks to those who've already left me some :).
