The xx Reveal Surprising New Sound with New Single 'Say Something Loving'

    The xx are really proving what they're capable of with their latest tune, "Say Something Loving." It's the second single off of their forthcoming album, I See You out on January 13th, and it sounds like the group is going through a massive transition.

    Stepping away from their notoriously depressing sound, the song features tropical-inspired percussion while singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim sing with intense passion and power. However, don't let the cheerful instrumentation and melodies trick you. If you liked the ability to relate to The xx's sad lyrics, it looks like they're keeping those around. With lines like "Here come my insecurities, I almost expect you to leave," and "You say something loving, it's so overwhelming / the thrill of affection feels so unfamiliar." Clearly the idea of being loved is foreign to the singers, but there's also a glimpse of positivity as they burst with an adrenaline rush, caused by love. "Don't let it slip away," they sing, as if it's too good and fragile to last.

    If this is what the rest of the new record sounds like, we're in for a good one.
