Crystalised - The XX

This song hooks me in with the guitar at the start and cleverly builds in the other instruments around it. Stripping them back to bring in the vocals (male and female) and then brings it all together for impact without being OTT. Reading that you may think it all builds up to a big end but it's not that kind of a track. It's cleverly written where less is more and black is the new black. No I don't know what I'm talking about either.

Like the name though, The XX, or the ex ex, does that make them now your partner again or is it a double negative? I've got to lay off the juice...
