The xx (SOLD OUT) at South Side Ballroom
Brenna Rushing Recommends
Soft harmonies interlaced with smart, sexy beats have set the XX apart from other electro acts ever since their debut album in 2009. The British group has found a way to make its calming melodies, led by Romy Madley Croft’s pillowed vocals, enchanting and cool, with complex combinations only a DJ can create. That DJ is Grammy-nominated musician Jamie Smith, who goes by Jamie XX. His work helps create a somber and captivating style that floats between dream and reality.
