XXTeens are five young men from London. Welcome To Goon Island is their 2008 debut album. The band is born from the great British art school tradition and their approach is to create the most interesting and expansive music possible with the limited tools they have available; an aesthetic that seeps into everything they do from videos to photos to extra curricular activities such as training dogs to dance. Yet such apparent frippery shouldn't disguise the fact that they are able to pen rather fine songs, as Welcome To Goon Island attests. XXTeens look set to bring a bit of depth and technicolour joy into the sometime hegemonic drabness of the current musical landscape.
