The XX Performed. I Cried.

 

Still proving that less can be more, The XX perform the first single off of their forthcoming, sophomore album, “Coexist.” Romy Madley- Croft’s voice glides through the air as she plucks very few strings from her guitar. Vocalist and bassist, Oliver Sim moves quietly and lets his bass do all the work for him while Jamie Smith opts for actual percussion and leaves the drum machine behind, for this performance anyway.

“Angels” is nothing short of what The XX are known for, great, atmospheric music and simple lyrics laced with complicated situations we all are familiar with.

“Coexist” will be released on September 11.
