The xx: xx (Young Turks/XL Recordings)

Roy Trakin, Rock's Backpages, March 2010

THIS LONDON-BASED QUARTET-turned-trio is fronted by a pair of precocious 20-year-olds in Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sims, who share vocals with an intimacy that’s a tribute to the fact they’ve known each other since they were three, and have been collaborating since they were 11.

Total word count of piece: 565
