British band The xx released a new promotional single on January 1 called “Say Something Loving” which is a sentiment all of us could use more of these days.
The track samples the Alessi Brothers’ 1978 track “Do You Feel It?” and spotlights the vocal interplay of singers Oliver Sim and Romy Madley Croft, as well as Croft’s sparse yet trademark guitar playing.
“You say something loving / It’s so overwhelming, the thrill of affection / Feels so unfamiliar / You say something loving,” the singers exclaim on the infectious chorus. “Without hesitation it hits me, hits me / It feels so unfamiliar.”
A few weeks ago the band was in Tokyo and had a bit of karaoke fun:
