Review Round Up: I See You by The XX

The XX are back with their third album – find out what critics have been saying about the album here: 

The Guardian: **** “I See You finds them a little gaudier of palette.”

The Financial Times: **** “the results turn out to represent a deft evolution in the band’s sound.”

The Daily Mail:  ***** “With their first two albums, The xx carved out their own sound – sparse, introspective, sorrowful, supremely sorted. This time, they retain their distinctiveness while having a lot more fun.”

NME: **** “I See You is not simply an album then, but a moment of realisation.”

Consequence of Sound: “What makes The xx and I See You so enthralling, then, may not be a particular combination of lyrics and melodies, but the notion that there’s a secret life playing out here — one we may not be entirely privy to, but one that still rings with the sound of truth in all of its complexities.”

The Independent: **** “The xx have maintained that element of mystique which is so vital for their music. They are exciting precisely because they refuse to reveal everything about themselves.”

Gigwise.com: “I See You is more redemptive and enlightened than anything The xx have done before.”

I See You will be released on the 13th January.
