Go Soulful with The xx
The xx is an Indie-pop band from London that has just released their second album Coexist early in September 2012.

I first came across the band's soulful music while browsing playlists on and immediately fell in love with their style.

Upon hearing The xx a couple of times on my iPod, I struggled to grasp what they were trying to achieve with their songs. There was a mix of emotions in each of their songs, and it sounded like they were experimenting with a range of styles at once. Strangely enough though, it worked to their benefit - in a big way! Their debut was successful and their work came to be featured in a couple of TV shows and movies.

Having recently heard some of the songs from their second album, I can safely say that the xx have outdone themselves again. Their style of music is haunting, but uplifting in a strange way. It is the kind of music that you can listen to at any time of the day, no matter what the mood.

Singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim recently stated in an interview that this album has a strong "club music" style inspiration, with The xx effect.

Listening to their music makes one feel like they're floating in air, weightless, free and happy. Their lyrics are meaningful to the point where one can feel a sense of motivation and love towards themselves and to those around them.

It is absolutely essential to check out their videos on YouTube as well - they have a timeless frame of futuristic liquid-like objects that complement the nature and undertones of their music.
