The xx have gone global.
Second album 'Coexist' won international acclaim, sparking a flurry of tour dates on several continents. Jetting around the globe, the band have been exposed to new influences, new ways of thinking.
The video for upcoming single 'Friction' reflects this. Out on July 15th, the single is drawn from their recent album and will be accompanied by a series of remixes.
Shot in Palm Springs during a recent burst of North American shows, the visuals for 'Friction' are deeply evocative. Draped in black and white, the video has a granite finish with the band merging with the shadows.
Watch it now.
