Name Origin:
Speaking with a New York radio reporter:
"The name was always an aesthetic thing," Croft said. Sim went on to say:
"It doesn't have a meaning. We just like x's. We made the name before the music, and I like that it's ambiguous and people can read into it if they want."

From: London, England
Genre(s): Indie pop, dream pop
Active From: 2005-present
Responding to the influence Elliott School had on their career:
"A teacher from Elliott who had never even taught us said how great we were. It's a bit annoying. We were left alone, more than anything - although I'm sure that helped us in its own way."
