That long awaited third album should be very special indeed.



Banger



The xx are a band that rely on dynamics to create the magic. On new single 'On Hold' they're sounding more magical than ever. It's a song that is built around three distinct parts - Romy and Olivers tender verses set against Jamie's chopped up Hall & Oates sample, yet it all comes together perfectly.

The kind of track that would sound equally as beautiful for night time bedroom reflection as it would blissful nightclub euphoria, it's a trick few bands can pull off, but The xx manage it effortlessly.

This is the sound of a warmer, more welcoming xx - a band perfectly in tune with each other and the music they want to make. That long awaited third album should be very special indeed. Martyn Young
