Listen: The xx “Angels”

    While on tour this summer, The xx have been debuting new songs, often without names. Now we have an actual studio recording and a name to one of the tracks that will appear on their forthcoming sophomore album Coexist, out September 11 via Young Turks.

    “Angels” is typically muted and subtle, once again tipping the band’s love of atmospherics above everything else. File this one next to your Beach House collection. What about the statement that the album will be all sad love songs? Starting to come into fruition, it seems. Take a listen below, and also find Coexist‘s track list and upcoming tour dates for The xx. [Consequence of Sound]
