I’m pretty certain The xx redefined indie minimalism with their debut album. The British trio’s self-titled release, and subsequent winner of the 2010 Mercury Prize, is an impressive set of singles to say the least. “Crystalized” is my favorite single off the album and I can’t count the number of times I’ve set it to loop endlessly. There’s something incredibly sexy and alluring in the monotonous vocals of Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim – something immediately forbidden, but impossible to ignore. Sex in a single, my friends.
