Today marks the release of YACHT’s newest single, “The Afterlife”. The single is accompanied by remixes from the likes of DAT Politics, Andrew WK and The xx.

The latter is atypical of the xx. The band has always worn a distinct dubstep inclination, but this remix removes the dream-pop sensibilities that the xx usually build their remixes upon (see: You’ve Got The Love, Pull My Heart Away). It’s interesting to see the band commit to experimenting with this remix, but it ultimately falls a bit short and feels like another dubstep-y remix. You be the judge:
