On the second single release from their upcoming album I See You, The xx continue to dramatically alter their sound and aesthetic from previous records. This is due much to the fact, I imagine, that producer Jamie xx has been given more of a centre spotlight on this album thanks to the success of his 2015 LP In Colour. Although obviously very different from their critically acclaimed debut I really admire the experimentation and risk taking by this group. The full album is set to be released on January 13th.
