The xx – ‘Open Eyes’ (demo)

A skeletal, dour triumph from the sessions for [a]The xx[/a]’s long-awaited new album. Coming off like a cousin of ‘Shelter’, here we find Romy Madley Croft providing a sadcore vocal bouquet over shadowy guitar, forsaking their old Chris Isaak vibe for entrancing, Chet Baker-indebted melancholy.
