While in watching my fiance set up his gear for a music show at Red Square in Burlington, VT, my attention was gripped by the music playing from an ipod within the bar. The sweet sounds of a man and woman weaving vocals, guitar and bass, The Xx, was revealed.
Formed in London in 2005, I’m a bit late on their scene. But I am here and ready to listen to their music until I can sing along word-for-word. Originally released in 2009, then rereleased in 2010, “Crystalised” is a song that lingers for days after you hear it.
