Episode Summary

EDIT
The XX - Basic Space
AIRED:
There are drinks. There is light. There is dark. There are girls. There are boys. A club...things happen. Slippery, slow, and sexy things. Romance? Maybe. Lust? Most definitely. Sorry to be lewd, but this is the imagery that zips across my mind whenever the music of London quartet The XX starts to churn. Blame the band I guess. Featuring dual vocalists in Romy Madley Croft and Jamie Smith, The XX make minimalist indie pop that not-so-subtlety traces the boundaries of r&b and soul music. Dark, moody, and sparkling with lots of abstract light, theirs' are songs that feel like those daring moments when brushing up against danger is an absolute necessity. Recently, the band shot a video for first single "Basic Space", and not surprisingly, the treatment looks a lot like the band's music sounds. Contrasting dark and light, abstruse beams of light whipping 'round the band's brows; this here video is modern, stylish, and a little bit menacing.moreless
