Stream: The xx – Coexist
Still, Coexist’s chilly quiet shouldn’t be mistaken for aloofness. The London band invests these 11 songs with real, bruised emotion, whether Romy Madley Croft is exposing her lovesick nerves in “Angels” or she and Oliver Sim are exuding wounded regret in “Sunset.” In “Missing” — not to be confused with the classic song by The xx’s more dance-minded spiritual ancestors in Everything but the Girl — Sim brings his ache to the front of the mix, singing, “My heart is beating in a different way” as Croft’s voice swirls behind him.
