The xx vocalist Romy Madley CrtÂ has come out with the exciting revelation that the group have some dance-floor-readyÂ tunes up their sleeves for the near future.
After a big year thus far - loaded with the release their third studio album I See You and a huge touring schedule - Romy found time to speak withÂ Â sayingÂ the London band have some "techno tunes" on the way.
She said "Weâve loved having more upbeat music in our set. Weâve remixed ourselves, thereâs some older songs that we now play at 120bpmâ¦ People probably assume that Jamie brought the injection dance music to the last album but in a way itâs funny because Oliver and I were inspired by what he was doing and when he got back he was actually the one who wanted to come in and slow it down.â
This comes as no real surprise, withÂ band member Jamie xx crafting an impressive catalogue dance tracks over the years, includingÂ his incredible solo alum In Colour that dropped in 2015.
Romy was later questioned whether she plans on releasing her ownÂ solo album similar to Jamie, to which she said is "definitely not something Iâm craving. I think with Jamie he makes so much music all the time, heâs always got his head in Pro-Logic on tour. Heâs inspired me and Iâm trying to get better at Pro-Logic. But at the moment Iâm all in with the band.â
