“Islands” – The xx
Today’s song is from The xx, an indie pop group formed by lead singers Oliver Sim and Romy Madley-Croft when they were 15 years old. The duo were later joined by Baria Quereshi on guitar, and Jaime Smith on the keyboard. Quereshi was removed from the group in 2009 by her bandmates, with Sim stating in an interview that “… It was a decision that me, Romy, and Jaime made. And it had to happen.” The band appears to have survived this turmoil as they released their second album, Coexist, in September of 2012.
“Islands” is off of the groups eponymous debut album from 2009. The video is pretty interesting as well. That is all.
Hope you enjoy!
