The xx are currently touring europe and dropping off new songs left and right, but they’ve just a bomb on YouTube denizens everywhere; the band played five new songs at their latest show. The recording quality for these new live songs––unofficially dubbed as “Closer,” “Devotion” (previously referred to as “As I Am”), “Leave,” “Strangers,” and “Friction”––also happen to be the best out of all of their new live material (but keep in mind that they still are amateur live recordings). Watch out for already-stuck-in-our-heads slow scorcher “Devotion” and the gorgeous, sprawling “Strangers.”
