When brilliance happens – The xx!

I know this song is old but whatever, get over yourself. “Islands” from award winning act The xx takes a simple emotion and in a straight forward way delivers it in such an appealing manor that will force you to hit the repeat button. As of lately I swear it’s been following me around the city of Chicago. From the random bars/restaurants I drop in on to the grocery store and occasional house party I attend, it’s seriously haunting me and I just can’t get enough of it – LOVE! Even the beautiful Shakira covered it and failed to leave quite the impression the original does – CLICK HERE and listen to her take. Check out the pretty fantastic video and a minimal remix to the track below.
