London's break out indie rock band of the year The XX might be a little too shy for the lime light. These 20 somethings from the UK had better get use to it if they keep making music this good. With emotionally driven lyrics that mingle with deep bass lines and perfectly pitchy guitar, The XX create a beautifully dark ambiance. It"s the kind of music you will listen to over and over. It is like being caught between two lovers who can see each other but can never touch again. Their amazing music has lead to some equally awesome remixes. Take a listen for yourself. I've posted some videos and tracks. Check them out and as always if you like it go buy it on itunes or in the store.
