“On Hold” – The xx

Everyone’s favorite atmospheric indie pop group has re-emerged. Following nearly a four-year hiatus, the xx have released a new single, entitled “On Hold,” off of their upcoming album I See You, which is set to drop on January 13th. “On Hold” is clearly different from their previous tracks, but keeps their staple vocals by Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sims, and the production by Jamie xx that we all know and love.  The infectious, rhythmic nature of the track’s instrumentals is in stark contrast with their previous, somber sound, though I can’t say that I’m mad about it. The freshness of “On Hold” makes it difficult to not be excited about their new album.
