The XX - I See You (Young Turks Records)

First unequivocal musical emotion of 2017 for me, The XX third LP, I See You, comes out right on time to heat our feelings.

5 years after their latest gem, the UK trio kept its poetic minimal pop signature while cheering things up a bit in a somehow more romantic atmosphere. Oliver Sim & Romy's vocals still works wonders, a perfect balance of strength & finesse, while Jamie XX's keyboards sounds got an extra dreamy vibe. Deep dive advised!
