An alt-rock band from the French Riviera who claim Linkin Park and Nickelback as their biggest influences, X-Y shot two versions of "Burn It Down" -- one with the full band and this one, with just vocals and piano. They do a respectable job with the harmonies and add a bit of atmosphere with their processed vocals, but it's otherwise a forgettable minute and a half.
