TRACK: The xx 'Angels'
And So They Return
The xx haven’t released material since 2009, but like so many other bands returning after a silent hiatus, they’re back proving that they deserve their place in the music world.
‘Angels’ is a delicate love song, filled with the intimate vocals of Romy Madley Croft, who whispers to an unknown lover about ‘being as in love with you as I am’. The track is a hypnotising love song, lulling you into something so intangibly beautiful that when the track abruptly finishes, you wonder where the last 3 minutes went.
