I know what you're thinking. Why Oliver Sim?
I get it, when you think of The xx
, "oh my god, so hot,"
isn't necessarily the first thing that comes to mind, but hear me out. Baeble Bae Alert is ready to bring the underdogs to the light, the secret hotties in hiding (ignore that one post we did on Matthew Healy
). All three members of The xx might be introverted and shy on the surface, but really they're scorching hot
musicians and their instruments are their weapons. I'd talk about both of them but I'm a gal, so naturally, Oliver Sim was the one who had me swooning when I caught the group at Coachella earlier this year. I mean, have you seen
him slay that bass?! No? Well just sit back, watch, and take careful note of how his hips sway when the beat drops:
...And that embroidered button down shirt is to die for!
Those moves, plus the chemistry with his counterpart Romy Madley Croft is undeniable. With such a strong relationship like that, we can't help but think that he must be a really cool guy to hang out with.
Sim, along with his bandmates, is throwing a festival in ICELAND! How many people can say they have done that? Not a lot!
He loves his bandmates a lot. I want nothing more than to join this beautiful hug circle:
HE LOVES HIS FANS. Imagine being that girl in the front row... Olly, I See You
His dashing personality in this solo interview with Billboard (especially at the end when he says music is his life):
This picture exists. Enough said:
He's BFFs with another fantastic artist, Sampha
How could you not love this classic English look?!
OMG, and this campaign he did for Dior Homme. We're loving these mysterious black and white vibes:
So we know, you're totally infatuated with Oliver Sim now. Remember at the beginning of this article and you were super confused? Don't worry, we're not going to say we told you so... But you're welcome.
