The xx embrace young love in London in the endearing new video for “Say Something Loving.” The Alasdair McLellan-directed clip mixes footage of the band performing with shots of teenagers playing arcade games, idling on the bus, dancing in the club and, for good measure – making out.
The xx released I See You in January, marking their first album since 2012’s Coexist. In an interview with Rolling Stone, singer/guitarist Madley Croft noted the album’s mainstream, pop sensibility and how making it differed from the band’s process on Coexist and their self-titled debut. “On this album, we all thought, ‘Let’s stop worrying. Let’s just make music,'” she said. “There’s this liberating feeling of playing what sounds good, what we like.”
