The xx "Chained"
Published Aug 07, 2012In just over a month's time, minimalist dark pop trio the XX will issue their sophomore set Coexist, and another teaser tune has been offered up to whet our whistles until September. Following the previously delivered "Angels," the lovelorn late-night jam "Chained" has leaked.
The tune finds Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim delivering a back and forth about a relationship gone wrong atop a some woozy keys, a clicky Jamie XX beat, and some especially spare bass plucking. "We used to get closer than this/is it something you miss?" they quietly coo in unison on the chorus. You can stream the song down below.
As previously reported, you can cozy up to Coexist when Young Turks issues the album September 11.
