Riff: The xx – “Fiction”

Aug 2, 2012

Fiction/When we’re not together

from Fiction lyrics by The xx

What’s the truth anyhow, in life or the sedated bedroom pop these new-gen masters wrap tight around the space between together and torn apart? Slapped with a bass-rattling key line that hangs out like a shadow,  the “vision” that is “mistaken” in this methodical hymn is better than fiction.
