New music from The xx means get your finest set of headphones out, because there is no better way to listen to this band. With music as beautifully minimalistic as this, the notes are just as important the space between them, and The xx masterfully balance the two on their new single “Angels.” If you’ve listened to these guys before and didn’t really enjoy it, try this song on for size but make sure your ears are nestled away in some over-ear headphones. You won’t regret it. Enjoy.
