First Listen: Gorillaz’ Cover of Crystalised by The xx

So anyone familiar with 2010 Mercury Prize winners The xx will be aware that they have such a distinct, unique sound that for another artist to do any of their songs justice, especially such a slice of perfection as Crystalised, it’s going to have to be pretty special.

This effort by Gorillaz is more than special. It is absolutely sublime.
