The xx on Tour

The xx

The XX is the type of a band that has been influenced by broad range of artists and they are not afraid to show it in their songs. One of the things that I noticed was their dynamic duo vocal structure. It was a bit like The Kills (and obviously The Kills was one of their influences along many others) where a male vocal and female vocal sing together, almost like engaging in a intimate conversation. It was very natural. I loved how the voices were almost monotonous—later found out that their low, monotonous voice came from the fact that they had to record at night in a small garage. The guitar, keyboard, drum beat all come together to make a sweet delirious sounds of pop/rock/electronic/R&B and everything else put together. They are going on tour starting May 25th.
