The xx | Lips

The more I listen to their latest album I See You, the more I think it’s their best yet. And I say that even though Coexist is one of my very favorite albums–just achingly beautiful. I See You has such a rich tonal variety, and represents an incredible evolution in their sound. Whereas a Coexist Part II, beautiful as it might have been, could well have seen them pigeonhole themselves. I’ve embedded the track Lips here, because I think it’s my favorite from the album, but check out Dangerous for an even clearer taste of that evolution.
