Riff: The xx – “Missing”

Sep 4, 2012

My heart is beating in a different way/Been gone such a long time and I feel the same

from Missing lyrics by The xx

Opening up their bedroom pop door to a pause not more than a few seconds, of course it’s an eternity with this songwriting trio, haunting about the throbbing artery drum fill of a relationship struggling to exist, Madley Croft an echoing vision, Sim a strung-out lead. Slip headphones on. Enjoy.
