“Dangerous” by The xx

In the five years between their last release Coexist and I See You (out today!), Jamie xx found heightened exposure as a solo artist thanks to his stellar In Colour. There was a vibrancy to the sound that was rarely attained under The xx moniker– a band more recognized for minimalism and nuance. In case there was any doubt of change, the opener “Dangerous” is likely the most daring track on the album and an early favorite. The two singles, “Say Something Loving” and “On Hold” are also both examples of the newfound energy– a welcome change for a band that seemed on the brink of diminishing returns with their music.
