You can’t hear much of it, and it appears to have been recorded on a cell phone, but here are the first clips to surface from The XX’s first two shows in nearly two years, the beginning of an upcoming European run. The above is a mostly Romy Madley Croft solo song where she is singing about, Being as in love with you as I am. Drums enter towards the end of the clip but it cuts off. The below video, knowingly titled, “Bad quality recording of the xx,” is the last 20 seconds of a song. Madley Croft and Oliver Sim gett husky-voiced together while Jamie XX does something fairly deep grooved in the background. Not much to go on, but for fiends like us, we’ll take it. We’ll update you as more footage becomes available.
Update 5/17/2012: Hear another untitled new track, below.
