The xx - You've Got the Love (Jamie xx Rework / Florence and the Machine Cover)


The xx really are creating some great remixes, as well as great music, lately. The song wonderfully begins with an entrancing dream-like sequence followed by a beat which remains constant throughout the song. The duel vocal of the xx's two leads then play off each other with a quiet, subtly confident delivery that goes over incredibly.

Silence fills after a simultaneously delivery of “Your love is real”. The song then explodes with Florence's soulful back and forth denial and acceptance of “You know it’s real”. This entire 5 minute 44 second song perfectly grasps the emotional highs of love and is a great, highly recommended track.
