Congratulations to The XX on winning the Mercury Music Prize!

09/07/2010

We heard about The XX sometime last year, and their record has crept its way into our hearts. The guitar tone especially really grabbed me, really haunting and understated!

We just watched them win the Mercury Music Prize, so nice one guys!

Here’s their speech, filmed by The BBC ! Enjoy,

Inspirations!

Went to watch a new band from Nottingham last week called Dog is Dead, and there harmonies reminded us of Animal Collective, who we are rather fond of. They gave a passionate, and energetic performance down at the Tram and Social in South London! Check them out people!

In other news, Paradise will finally be available as a free download in the first week of November!

FARM FESTIVAL 30/31st July 2010

07/15/2010

We are very excited to be playing Farm Festival this year . Its a non-corporate festival in its fifth year, and it keeps getting bigger and better….

We drove past the site on the way to Glastonbury a few weeks ago, which served to whet our appetite somewhat.

There are a pair of tickets up  for grabs here on the Topman website.

We are playing at 6pm on the main stage on Saturday evening, for the full line-up click here.

See you there.

The song that could go on forever….
