Pop darlings The xx were flung into the limelight a few years ago, and since have been on a non-stop journey. The young British group share their story in a three-part documentary they break up into “Recording,” “Rehearsal,” and “Live,” giving you a well-rounded picture of exactly what goes on in their world. Watch part one above, and the remaining two parts after the jump.

The group also recently released a holiday tune covering Wham. You can stream “Last Christmas” below and enjoy the shivers that these guys invariably rule at giving. The son is also a free download!

Video: Siaira Shawn – “Twice” (Little Dragon Cover)

 

Fresh off her Sade cover for “Cherish The Day,” our girl Siaira Shawn has a new favorite she’s decided to cover. The chilling Little Dragon song “Twice” gets the Siaira Shawn a cappella treatment with an equally haunting video that draws everything still. Hope we’ll get to hear more beyond these snippets, too!
