Warpaint, Martina Topley-Bird, and Mark Lanegan Cover The xx’s “Crystalised”

There’s a certain smoothness and coolness to the vocals of The xx’s Romy Madley Croft and, to a lesser extent, Oliver Sim. It’s clear across their whole body of work, and especially on debut album standout “Crystalised,” which is covered here by Tricky collaborator Martina Topley-Bird, the grizzly voiced Mark Lanegan, and Warpaint. With the bass brought to the fore, and a nice little animated video, this is a great new take on a song that many people will have surely overplayed massively. Watch and listen above.
