Video of the Moment #2322: The xx

The start of the year saw the release of the xx‘s latest album ‘I See You’, which proves probably as polarising as Jamie xx’s own 2015 debut ‘In Colour’. They’ve gone less moody and…happy! Carrie describes this as ” a fresh take on the band’s established sound” in her review of their third long player. In ‘Say Something Loving’, previously released as a single, Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim trade lovey-dovey statements and frankly, it makes me uncomfortable as the band try taking a lo-fi approach to zoom in shots of the band while the slick song runs in the background. Oddly, some people are saying that they look like pop pin-ups in this. Was that the intention? I suppose as they say, good art should make you feel something, and this is definitely making me feel…something. Watch the music video for ‘Say Something Loving’ below.
