They’re back! Could this be the most exciting musical moment to happen in 2012? I’m pretty sure its a strong contender. Ahead of their eagerly awaited second album ‘Coexist’ and their bound to be phenomenal headline set at Bestival this coming September, The XX have dropped the first single from the follow up to their debut album, ‘Angels’.
Fans will be pleased to hear that the sound hasn’t moved dramatically from their existing catalogue whilst still managing to sound fresh. For me, ‘Angels’ is like the new album’s ‘Shelter’. Still as beautiful, but with a little more confidence and little more development. Lyrically, its stunning, Romy’s vocals are beautiful and as a package, it’s flawless.
Roll on September.
