About "The XX"

It is possible that a part of ordinary listeners got to know electronic indie rock trio “The xx” only this winter with their phenomenally popular hit “On Hold”. With the latest performance gentle, affected R & B Indie pop-rock that had already become the group's business card, have been supplemented with rich bass and club music bits. In several compositions ethereal guitar chords and timid vocals are replaced by fully convinced individual performance. It is reflected in music critic’s reviews which were laudatory about band’s style and originality in the beginning, but now they are talking about the trio affecting music development globally.
