The xx Debut "Swept Away"


Thankfully, the xx are still previewing new music while on tour. While playing in front of a sold out crowd in Los Angeles last week, the trio played a new song apparently called "Swept Away." The band had indicated that their new album, Coexist had been influenced by the now prominent bass-centric dance music in the UK, but the cavernous first single "Angels" showed little to no evidence of that. "Swept Away" seems to be a lot more kinetic, without losing that classic xx touch (those skeletal guitar riffs!). Note: the quality of this fan-shot video isn't the best.
