The XX Keep Us Chained With New Song
  • TUESDAY, AUGUST 07, 2012

The XX haven't given up their less-is-more approach, as evidenced by the emotional weight of their sparse, minimal new songs. We first heard the beautiful, heart-squeezing "Angels" last month, and today, new track "Chained" exudes a similarly short-winded instrumentation, with a climactic bridge carried by a simple ascending guitar line. Anyone who was worried that the bands smokey sex appeal and characteristic simplicity would be absent from Coexist can sleep easy.



Coexist is out 9/11.
