The Up-Turn

If you haven’t already heard, 2009’s favorite Brit-pop band are back in the studio recording a follow-up to their extremely successful and critically acclaimed debut.  Somewhere in the midst of recording the new album, which everyone seems to be saying is going to be really house-influenced because of one comment which has probably been blown completely out of proportion, the band put together this track, which will most likely not make its way onto the album.  “Open Eyes” is a beautifully haunting and delicate guitar-and-vocal track.  This track is only a demo, so maybe a mastered version would sound different, but if this is any indication of the new album’s aesthetic, The xx are sticking with the haunting echo of their debut LP.  The xx kindly are offering up this demo for free download which you can link to below…
