Riff: The xx – “Reunion”

Aug 2, 2012

Here goes that feeling/Don’t let me see her

from Reunion lyrics by The xx

Boy-girl lovers’ lament never-quitting, Romy Madley-Croft sirens a “reunion” chorus, Oliver Sim “listening to words that someone else has said,” both catching “moonlight” glimpses of one another, while a stripped-bare island club beat vies for meat and a strangled guitar note wails for air. Sigh.
