London trio the xx aren't probably ever going to reinvent the wheel, musically speaking, but if you like their particular brand of hushed indie soft rock, you'll appreciate some of the risks they take on their third album. While I would never describe them as upbeat, there's a bigger sonic palette and a fuller overall sound. The strength of the band remains the intimate vocals of Romy Croft and Oliver Sims, set against the understated beats of Jamie XX. The title comes from a Velvet Underground song.
It's usually a good sign when I can't decide which song is my favorite. Currently listening to Brave for You on an endless loop.
This seems like a paler version of 'Everything But the Girl', sad songs about lost love. Mostly pleasant but forgetable___ except for track #8, 'On Hold' which is ANOTHER sad song about lost love but with a really great hook/chorus, and is the reason i checked out this album in the first place.
This latest opus by the newly reinvested xx is highly enjoyable. However, it did take a couple of listens to get me there. I See You is an excellent combination of what made the xx and Jamie xx's In Colour so amazing. Though, personally, it is near impossible to NOT sonically think of Neon Trees and Lykke Li when listening to this album, so if you are a fan of either, get into this!
