This is the first time I repeat and artist in a post but it's justified by the publication of their first single. A couple of months ago I talked about The XX as one of the most interesting bands appearing in the London scene; four 19 year old kids with a love for RnB and the capacity of swallowing their influences to assimilate them and then eject them transformed into something completely new and different. The final version of Crystalised is better and more dynamic than the demo version I uploaded here and the B side is a cover of Aaliyah's Hot Like Fire you wouldn't recognise if you didn't read the credits saying the lyrics are by M. Elliot.
