Words: Saam Das
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all got a nice present or two. And if not, here's a lovely, understated offering from The xx, which they're giving away for free. The band are in the course of making their long awaited second album, following their Mercury winning debut. Download the demo of 'Open Eyes' below.
The demo of 'Open Eyes' eschews the typical Jamie xx production, instead opting to push Romy's vocals into the centre stage, accompanied by a haunting backing melody. It's got that in-front-of-the-fireplace feel, entirely appropriate for this winter season. Let's hope the new album drops sometime in the new year.
