If anyone knows how to tug at your heartstrings and make dreamy electro pop come to life, it’s the XX. Ahead of what is sure to be an absolutely epic set at Splendour in the Grass, the band have just dropped their video for “I Dare You” and it’s wonderful.
Not only is an open invitation to truly understand the weight and meaning behind a simple phrase, but it’s also a self confessed love letter to the city of LA. There’s something so beautifully mundane and normal about the characters featured, that the story, and the track by extension, surfaces as more relatable than ever.
the XX play Splendour in the Grass in Byron Bay (July 21st – July 23rd). Stay up to date with the band here.
