The XX Win the Mercury Prize Megapost

September 08, 2010


Congratulations to The XX (and everyone at Young Turks and XL) for the Mercury Prize win last night. The prize, awarded to the UK + Ireland group with the best album of the preceding year, was awarded to one of our favorite groups, one who we heavily believe in. The XX have inverted music and created something extra new. To celebrate such a deserved win, below are some highlights of the band on TheFADER.com throughout the band's existence, starting with a very old interview with them on Scott Wright's Dollars to Pounds blog. Again, congratulations and, if you're not, get familiar!
