One of our favorite new bands, The xx, won the UK's Barclaycard Mercury Prize for their debut album, xx!
The award honors the best album of the year coming from a British or Irish singer or group, and includes a $30,000 prize!
Frontman Oliver Sim says:
"I don't know what we were expecting but we weren't expecting this."
Congratulations, guys! We definitely think you deserve it - that album is AMAZING!
