The XX – “The XX”

the-xxThe XX son otro caso de esos de hype extremo. De repente en el año 2009 todo el mundo se puso a hablar de ellos, sonaban por todas partes. Mi primera impresión fue que me recordaban a Young Marble Giants, quizás con más adornos y por supuesto echando de menos la voz de Alison Statton a pesar de que la voz de su cantante, Romy MadleyCroft, también tiene su encanto, pero Alison es mucha Alison. También me recordaban a Cocteau Twins , pero mucho más accesibles, más fáciles de escuchar y quizás fue eso lo que les hizo sonar en todas partes. A pesar de la intensa promoción, que podía hacerte desconfiar, pero cuando se tienen canciones como “Basic Space”, “Crystalised”, “Islands” o “Infinity” (esta última arranca igual que el “Wicked Game” de Chris Isaak) no hay ni trampa ni cartón, estamos ante un gran disco, un excelente debut. Nada que vaya a cambiar la historia de la música, eso es verdad, pero qué demonios el primer disco The XX es de los que aparecen para quedarse.

Neck, chest, waist to floor
Easy to take, you could take me in fours
Make me a deal, a day a piece
Take it all, just stay a week


I’ll take you in pieces
We can take it all apart
I’ve suffered shipwrecks right from the start
I’ve been underwater, breathing out and in
I think I’m losing where you end and I begin

Basic space, open air
Don’t look away, when there’s nothing there

I’m setting us in stone
Piece by piece, before I’m alone
Air tight, before we break
Keep it in, keep us safe

It’s a pool of boiling wax
I’m getting in
Let it set
Got to seal this in
Can’t adjust, Can’t relearn
Got to keep what I have, preserve

Hot wax has left me with a shine
Wouldn’t know if I’d been left behind
Second skin, second skin

I can’t let it out, I still let you in

I can’t let it out, I still let you in
