English indie-pop band The xx came together in Wandsworth, London in 2005. The band consists of Oliver Sim, Romy Madley-Croft, and Jamie Smith. Sim and Croft had started the band as a duo when they were 15-years-old. They started performing in 2005 with guitarist Baria Qureshi. A year later, Qureshi left the band and Smith took her place.
The xx got a lot of attention and positive reviews with their 2009 debut album xx. The xx sound is very intimate, mellow, dark, and inspirational. Croft’s sultry voice emerged a new sound in the indie music world. The chemistry of Croft’s and Sim’s vocals is phenomenally mixed with Smith’s crisp beats.
The xx are currently on tour; you can check out their website for the dates.
