Riff: The xx – “Reunion”

Aug 3, 2012

If I want to move on, I need to face it/I need tonight

from Reunion lyrics by The xx

Thoughts, words and memories are forgotten, recollected and retold in this back-and-forth push-and-pull of a song. The xx’s two characters reunite to make a story of what happened in a lifetime drawn together in four insatiable minutes of cantored dialogue. It’s a reunion of painful happenstance.
