I’m loving XX’s new song, Angels, taken from their forthcoming album, Coexist. It has XX’s signature dark, minimalist guitars, stagnant drums, and breathy vocals, which are hauntingly beautiful. The repeated pleading in the songstress’ voice is so heartfelt it takes Angels to a more personal and intimate place for the listener.
