For the video companion to what is probably the most popular song from The XX's stellar, self-titled record, the South West Londoners took an appropriate approach in the creatives. Shot in both stark black and white and a nice wash of color, the Marcus Soderlund directed piece could have been derived from the lines "We, we live half in the day time/And we, we live half at night". Here, through a variety of color palettes, a couple trade delicate looks and youthful kisses in between wild, destructive behavior. Like the stark, soulful tune that accompanies it, the band give you beauty and tension all at once, with an cinematic touch. - David Pitz
