The XX – Angels

Monday, July 16th, 2012

This song is very interesting, because it has The XX sound, but it also takes on other elements (as much as a very minimalist song can). It sounds very Beach House-y, especially at the beginning. The lack of drums is very interesting, especially since the catchier tracks on their self-titled feature very cool yet simple drum arrangements (i.e. Heart Skipped a Beat and Islands). But no doubt this is a great track off another promising release from the British indie group. This single is already getting everyone very excited for their Sept. 11th release, so much so that XX fans are coming seemingly coming out of the woodwork. Nothing wrong with that as if this upcoming release is anything like their self-titled, I will be a very happy camper.
