A five-piece band from London, XX Teens are often compared to art terrorists the Fall, although they also enjoy driving, funky backbeats like those generated by !!! or Ratatat. Originally called the Xerox Teens, the band changed its name as a subversive ploy, well aware that the new name could cause Internet search engine nightmares. They made their debut in 2005 with the single "Round" on the Big Billy Records label. A year later the label released their single "Onkawara," an underground hit that influenced Mute Records to sign the band to the Mute Irregulars imprint. After the "Darlin'" single was released in 2007, the band moved to Mute proper for the "How to Reduce the Chances of Being a Terror Victim" single, released in 2008. ~ David JeffriesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
