Stream: The xx, "Chained"

The xx unveiled a new song from their upcoming sophomore album, Coexist. "Chained" is indicative of the direction we've been hoping they'd head, a little more buoyant while still retaining their signature harmonies and Romy Madley-Croft's snaky guitar. Jamie Smith's drum work here is close to his solo productions as Jamie xx and it's a promising new direction, both for them and music in general.
