The xx – New music and video

Let’s be honest, the Christmas fairy dust can fade very quickly. The expanding waistline, looming credit card bills, beleaguered veins coursing with beer, red wine and Schnapps thicken our blood into the kind of adhesive normally reserved for industrial strength DIY products.
