The xx dropped the next tune from their upcoming album Coexist, a serenely minimalistic cut entitled “Angels.” It’s vintage Romy & co., as the trio presents the nuts and bolts of their preferred aesthetic, which turns up Romy’s haunting vocals and mellows the bass and Jamie’s production. It’s one more step toward Coexist‘s September release date and another track to placate fans who’d prefer Jamie’s house sound stay separate from his band’s oeuvre. So clap for ‘em, kids. There’s no reason to think the next leak will be any different. They’re back and ready to keep your heads in a trance.
Coexist makes its way stateside September 11 via Young Turks.
