Excellent cover of a classic of current music, song of The XX and its ‘Crystalised’ now adequiere new life with this cover led by the Canadian duo of Art Department (Jonny White & Kenny Glasgow) for the Canadian label of No. 19 Music, a project that arises when The XX was called to Martina Topley Bird (the distinctive female voice in the first albums of Tricky and later with their own albums) to record a version of Crystalised for a compilation of the group, but in the end The XX released new album, remaining secluded that new version of the track; so now directed by Art Deparment told the voices of Martina and a classic and a great singer of the rock scene of the last 20 years as it is Mark Lanegan and the indie-art-psychedelic band of Los Angeles of Warpaint, the voices were recorded in London with Martina and Mark, while Warpaint work from the desert in Los Angeles, a version deep, with excellent arrangements, a powerful bass and strings that accompanies the amazing vocals, all accompanied by a fantastic video that combines animation with pictures of Martina and Mark singing the song.
