The xx is easily my favorite band. Whenever I’m in a happy, or sad, or angsty, etc., etc. mood I turn to their music as the perfect cure. Jamie xx, the percussionist/mixer behind the band, just released a solo album, In Colour, and what I’ve heard does not disappoint. The first single from the album features Romy, the guitarist and lead vocalist for the xx, whose voice makes me melt! Check out their awesome collaboration, Loud Places, below. Don’t worry, I’ll be over here dancing by myself (not in loud places).
And be sure to listen to other pre-released tracks on Jamie’s site. The full album will be here June 2nd!
