New Music: The xx – “Chained”

The xx just can’t go wrong. “Chained” is the new track to drop from the band’s upcoming album, Coexist (release date: September 10 internationally and September 11 in the USA). The best way to describe it is beauty in simplicity. Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim combine perfectly harmonised vocals to create a laidback, ethereal atmosphere. The relentless guitar rhythm with the backbeat and silky electro mix glimmers with raw feeling.

It’s a wonderful song, and Coexist is shaping up to be yet another winner for the xx.

In cased you missed it, go listen to “Angels” too.

Suite listening.
