The XX – Chained

Another hugely anticipated album “Coexist” out September 11th. Here is 2nd studio recorded song “Chained”.

The XX are seemingly keeping the new album pretty raw and relaxed. I think this is a good approach to their second album especially as initially they were considering not to record another at all. This relaxed ambience to “Coexist” may not please all fans of their debut as it doesn’t quite pack the punches of ‘Crystallised’, ‘Intro” or ‘Islands’ however it’s the beauty and the simplicity of an album which isn’t trying to dethrone it’s predecessor which will eventually allow it to be reviewed without success of “the XX” in mind.

Here is “Angels” if somehow you managed to miss it:
