We all know the XX, the Indie Pop music band from London. Formed by team members Jamie Smith, aka Jamie XX, Oliver Sim, Romy Madley Croft and Baria Qhreshi , the XX offers us singular music, in a dreamy, rhythmic atmosphere.
We also know their last album Co-exist released in 2012 with smooth tracks such as “Angels”, “Chained ” and “Fiction”. We can’t forget their ” XX” album back in 2009 with classic tracks “VCR” , “Crystalised” or “Heart Skipped a Beat”. Meanwhile, Jamie XX released his personal project, in 2011. Remastering Gil Scott-Heron masterpieces “We’re New Here” , a big success, and my personal fav “I’ll Take Care Of You”, way before Drake & Rihanna version.
