The xx preview five new songs | New Music

Much like the mystique their identity carries, London-based indie pop outfit The xx are remaining just as cryptic when it comes to new material. Having previewed a slew of new, untitled music in a run of three intimate shows in the UK capital recently, MTHRFNKR have compiled all five new songs performed during their final show at Battersea Arts Centre for your streaming pleasure.

Jamie xx may have hinted at a more “club” orientation for the group’s highly anticipated sophomore album, but lending an ear to these new tunes, which may or may not land on said LP, The xx’s new material will be just as beautifully melodic and ambient as ever.

A release date for their second album is yet to be confirmed.

“The xx have not stated how the tracks are called, I made the names up as it’s easier to differentiate between them when playing them in Itunes” – MTHRFNKR
