Show Review

Though renowned for their blank stares and blas approach to what they do, The XX's new Saam Farahmand directed video for "Islands" has a bit more charisma than any of the other visuals they have previously released. Of course, that is the band at the center of the scene, looking as bored as ever as a choreographed dance scene alters little by little as it cycles through on repeat.
