Video of the Moment #2232: the xx

By on Wednesday, 30th November 2016 at 6:00 pm

As mentioned in this In the Post I wrote last week here on TGTF, in case you’ve been living under a rock, surprise! The xx are back! Romy Madley-Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith have reconvened to announce their third album ‘I See You’, slated for release the 13th of January 2017. They even guested on Saturday Night Live in America to celebrate. The first taster from ‘I See You’ is ‘On Hold’, which comes across a little weird to me, primarily for the weak rhymes employed in it (read that In the Post for more of my thoughts on the single). Now, rather predictably, the song has its own promo. No longer the shy, introspective goths we thought they were back in 2009, their ‘new’ pop sound is matched visually with…high school students? Er, right… Watch it below. If you wish to regale yourself with our past coverage of their former shadowy selves, go here.
