Who knew The xx
could make something so saucy and sensual? Yeah, saucy. I said it. If you listen to "Lips," a cut off of their brand new record, I See You,
you'll understand what I'm talking about. Romy playfully flirts with a delicate falsetto that follows a gorgeous, minimalistic guitar riff which is strategically placed over a sample that hauntingly sings on repeat, "Just your love, just your shadow, just your voice, and my soul."
It adds more dynamics to an already very dynamic conversation between Oliver and Romy. It's a slow-burning track that's good enough to chill to or get down to... A hot slice of heaven.
