The XX – Crystalised

On the evening of their amazing Mercury Prize win, here is a tribute to one of the best British bands of the moment, The XX.

Fighting off competition from icons such as British legend Paul Weller, folk darling Laura Marling, indie rockers Foals and grime popper Dizzee Rascal, as well as the more underground Kit Downes Trio, Wild Beasts and I Am Kloot, The XX cleaned up and took that prize home!

Well done also to Natalie Wade of Small Green Shoots who helped fund one of their earlier gigs back in 2008 at the Exposure Gallery in Little Portland St at The London Songwriters Week. Look how far they have come! (Yes, I was cajoled into this bit of flattery but I’m a sucker for a bribe!)

Here is the deliciously atmospheric ‘Crystalised’ for your aural pleasure…
