As you could probably guess from the icy craftsmanship they put into their music, the members of the xx are music geeks. Considering that many of their songs probably end up on romantic mixes from paramour to paramour, it’s only fitting that the British group would craft their own playlist for iTunes.
There are some interesting choices, from Everything But The Girl (“This band is more of an influence than we could ever say. – Oliver”) to the Streets, but what’s really neat is to see the xx-sters repping some lesser-known groups like Trailer Trash Tracys and tour mates New Look. You can grab the playlist plus the band’s explanations over at iTunes.
The xx’s sophomore album Coexist drops September 11 via Young Turks.
