Seriously....somebody try to tell me these aren't hot.
Wednesday, March 10, 2010
I refuse to listen to the radio or take MTV off mute from now until the end of time. The music scene today has been molded into an outlet for obnoxious idiots to prance around singing about everything and anything that lacks substance and originality. Artists like Ke$ha (if she can even be considered an artist) are idolized for their lack of brain waves and trash image. These days, who cares if you can sing? if you're hot they'll throw you in a recording studio where your voice is synthesized into something the mainstream public will eat up. Unfortunately, if your looks are anything less than a perfect 10, you're screwed.
This is exactly why I can't stop listening to The xx. The sound of their voices blending together makes me think of two beautiful people in a hopelessly romantic relationship. However, watch their videos or see them live and you'll be shocked. The fact that their physical imperfections, awkward stage presence, and lack of mainstream look can blend together to tell these storys full of friction, passion, and heartbreak make their music all the more enjoyable to listen to. Currently, I feel like The xx is the musical narration to my life.
