We all might be a little tired of The Great Gatsby trailers. And the couple of tracks they’ve released from the soundtrack have kept us guessing. Sure, Young Hov is executive producing, so you’re expecting nothing but Roc Nation and Jay-Z-associated tunes. But this recent drop from The xx is an offbeat surprise.
“Together” sounds like The xx, too, right off Coexist, which is good. Jamie xx’s signature production stands out from the rest. A haunting cowbell riding the beat, with synth violins underlying Romy and Oliver’s sorrowful, breathy purrs make up the composition, which is indie complaint pop at its finest.
