[Stream] The xx- “Angels”

The xx‘s highly-anticipated sophomore album, Coexist, doesn’t arrive till the Fall but, you can whet your pallet until then with album opener “Angels.” The song itself is more of the same atmospheric, sensual and brooding indie-pop that the xx do so well.

However, I feel like “Angels” is the quiet before the storm. I get the sense from the snare that comes into the song a minute in that Coexist isn’t going to be xx V.2. I’m thinking this record is going to be darker than its predecessor. Than again, I could be looking into it a bit much.

Take a listen to it below, and decide for yourself.
