The xx - VCR

by Rich Morris Rating:7 Release Date:2010-01-18

Another slice of small town romanticism from a band that's fast amassing an enviable celeb fanbase. The XX's charm is that they sound like they'd rather spend a quiet night in playing board games with that special someone then be caught staggering out of the hottest rock'n'roll party at some unholy hour of the morning. 'VCR' is about two people who express their love for each other by watching films on obsolete technology, shutting out the real world so they can create their own. Musically, it's a sweet but undemanding slice of swooning surf pop given mystery and tension thanks to some appealingly achy vocals.
