Yes, they all look fairly miserable don’t they? But The XX are also pretty clever musically…in an ‘Angsty, I hate my life and I don’t care about anything so I’ll sing like that’ kind of way.

But seriously I do quite like them. Yes, their voices are slightly monotonous, but then, the Ramones pretty much used the same chord progressions in every song (don’t worry – I still adore them) and they are widely regarded as brilliant.

As well as their amazing skill at expressing emotion through their music (*cough) they also have made a cracking remix of Florence + the Machine’s ‘You’ve got the love’ that I really recommend listening to.

If blank expressions and copious amounts of black clothing appeal to you also, have a listen to The XX’s ‘Crystalised’ and ‘Islands’. Really very excellent.
