Stumbled upon the xx completely randomly.

From their photo they appear to be a generic super-emo band, but don’t judge the book by its cover.

They’re ridiculously good. Poetic lyrics with minimalist rock.

I’ll take you in pieces
We can take it all apart
I’ve suffered shipwrecks right from the start
I’ve been underwater, breathing out and in
I think I’m losing where you end and I begin
