It’s been a little more than a week since we got our first taste of the xx‘s second album, Coexist, with the track “Angels.”
As I’ve gotten to hear the track a little bit more, I’d have to say I’m getting pretty pumped to hear the whole thing. Though the new song retains so much of what made the debut great, it also seems to be a step forward musically for the group. In particular, this song seems to have more emotional intensity than their earlier work.
How’s the track growing on you? More or less excited for the album? Here’s a perfect opportunity to form your second opinion. The group performed “Angels” on Conan last night, and you can watch it below:
