How are people feeling about the new xx record, Coexist? I don’t feel like I’ve been hearing my reviews, positive of negative. This is probably the result of me neglecting Twitter for the last month of so.
For me, the verdit is still out on Coexist. Don’t take that the wrong way – it’s a great album. But I haven’t fallen madly in love with it like I did their debut. Of course, I’ve only had a couple months to get to know Coexist, so it’s not really a fair comparison yet.
You can consider (or reconsider) your opinion on Coexist with this new video for “Chained.” It’s directed by Young Replicant in conjunction with The Creators Project, which is a partnership between Intel & VICE. (I’m not the only one that thinks that corporate partnership is a little icky, right?) Either way, check out the video below:
Watch for: the allusion to Coexist’s album art at 2:27.
