Epiphone guitar 'gives The xx a heavy dose a soul'
The use of an Epiphone guitar is an important aspect of the songs made by hotly-tipped British band The xx, it has been suggested.
Describing The xx as a cross between The Cure and Massive Attack, he stated there is a growing buzz about the group.
"Singer Romy Madley Croft plays a Goldtop Epiphone, giving their ghostly, minimalist electronic compositions like Islands and Night Time a heavy dose of soul," it was added.
Vaziri went on to recommend a range of acts worth catching at the industry event - including indie band Spoon, rock star Andrew W.K. and retro soul outfit Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.
Earlier this month, The xx were announced as one of the acts for this year's Latitude Festival, which will also feature Vampire Weekend and Florence and the Machine.
