The London-based indie-rock trio met each other as teens – at the same school that produced Hot Chip and Pierce Brosnan.

You’ve heard their music as it’s been used extensively as background music on a wide range of programs including Grey’s Anatomy, Misfits and Top Gear, as well as sports coverage.

Touring to promote their third studio album, I See You, there’s little not to like about The xx, other than their lower case name. Big kisses or no-nos, you decide.
