I have been meaning to write about The xx for a while. Seeing as we are going to their festival 'Night + Day' tomorrow, I thought it would be a good time to post my latest blog in honour of the band.

Since the day Bob and I started Alpines we have always been inspired by their music and the world they have built. For a long time, whenever I would drive around at night, their first self-titled album would be on repeat - I never became bored of listening. It helped me to think and it made me feel calm and happy. So, after all this time, I never thought I would have the chance to meet them, but now I am lucky enough to consider Romy and Oliver good friends of mine. They are some of the most generous people I know and I treasure their friendship dearly. 

I believe everything in life happens for a reason. The faith and love I had for The xx's music all those months before we met inspired me daily to make music that felt right and true. To now have Romy guiding and reminding me to take time and do exactly this is so special.

So here's to The xx, thank you for everything you have given us.
