Whilst recording their new album, The xx have released this demo as a cheeky little teaser for the whole album, which is set to be finished within the next couple of months. The track is pretty sparse, even by The xx standards, and at 2 minutes 32 seconds it leaves us here at DYC eagerly wanting more. Eerie, echoey and calm, it heavily contrasts some of the more upbeat electronic stuff Jamie xx was producing earlier this year. Perhaps the New Year will signal a return to the minimalist sentiment found in the album which did their success so many favours in 2009.
