With less than a month until the release date of The xx‘s highly anticipated sophomore album, yet another new track has surfaced onto the interwebs. A bare, minimalist-type song, “Sunset”‘s highlights are found in the pairing of the male/female vocals. Separately, each is velvety and so uniquely textured, but together, they sound especially spine-tingling. Soft-spoken but intimate, solemn but still sultry, they speak volumes without actually doing so. Like “Chained,” which we wrote about not too long ago, “Sunset” follows a relationship that’s falling apart at the seams.
Coexist comes out September 11th on Young Turks.
