It makes for an odd but effective boy-girl dynamic, like eavesdropping a lovers’ secret conversation.

Accompaniment is little more than sparse electronic beats played live by Jamie Smith, hitting pads with nimble fingers, and some indefinable, ambient sounds interacting with Sim’s sub bass frequencies and Croft’s slinky, finger-picked guitar figures.

Singers Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim talk to each other in song, carrying on a musical conversation like a post-modern Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner or anxiety-ridden Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.

Actually, they were favourites before the shortlist was even announced, topping every critic’s list of predictions.

There are more established names up for the prize (Paul Weller, Dizzee Rascal, Corinne Bailey Rae) but the xx have been taking the music world by stealth not storm, creeping up on the slow lane with one of the most original yet seductively approachable debut albums in recent memory.

"I go on it and there's nothing but people saying mean things. Love you all." He recently announced another UK and Ireland tour which will include two dates at Wembley Stadium in London.

When the Mercury Prize was announced this week, the xx were quickly installed as bookies favourites.

The singer-songwriter, who just headlined the Sunday night at Glastonbury Festival, said he had decided to stop using his account after realising that the tweets were "ruining his day".

While our critic did know what a loop station was, he still wasn't a huge fan of the performance and awarded it two stars, against four from the Sheeran added in his last proper tweet: "Anyway, great night, great atmosphere, family, friends, fun.

Michael Eavis confirmed that his five-day music event will take a gap year in 2018, what they call a “fallow year,” to give the dairy farm in Somerset time to recuperate from the damage.

This occurs every six years, “in order to give the farm, the village and the festival team the traditional year off,” but the organiser said they would break tradition if one mysterious band agreed to perform.

Songs appear to have been deconstructed to essential parts: ghostly melody lines, shadowy rhythm, a skeleton hook, yet out of this emerges something completely recognisable as pop music.

The xx are a Mercury Prize-winning trio formed in 2005 in London, United Kingdom and signed to Young Turks.

Influence is a fluid concept, so rather than simply tipping our caps to the legends (again), we set out to quantify which are the biggest influences on today’s music scene.
