Riff: The xx – “Swept Away”

Aug 3, 2012

None of this fades when you’re gone away/I’m so far away yet you feel so near

from Swept Away lyrics by The xx

Pulling together a song that goes through transitional phases like the seasons really motivates a successful story from The xx this time around. This, together with hand claps and heavy drum beats pair to inspire the emotional process in being so enthralled by another person.
