VIDEO: The xx 'I Dare You'

'I Dare You' goes a little deeper than the average music video these days.  That should come as no surprise when you learn that it's the result of collaboration between Alisdair McLellan and Raf Simons, and serves as a love letter to the city of Los Angeles.  The video has a more intriguing cast, and plot than a lot of movies and tv shows.  The song becomes part of this work of art, meeting the talents of countless others part way to create something special.  The cast includes Millie Bobby Brown, Ernesto Cervantes, Paris Jackson, Lulu, and Ashton Sanders.  You'll want to watch it again and again...

The XX: 'On Hold'

It's no big secret that the XX have been in the studio recently.  They've shared some images on their Instagram as they work on the new project, as well as updating their 'In The Studio' playlist on Spotify.  Recently that list included a few short, untitled clips that appear to be samples from the upcoming third record 'I See You'.

Early this morning 'On Hold' was released, and the next chapter in one of the most influential bands' history  begins.  It's the first time since Jamie XX' 'In Colour' that we've heard all three band members performing together, and it is a very welcome return.  The song begins gently and ends on a high note with the sound of early hip hop and electro making it's way into the mix.  With each release the XX have explored new aspects of their sound, and that's an exciting prospect as their third record approaches.
