Currently typing this post next to a fountain in the middle of campus. Talk about relaxing :)
A few weeks ago, I sent Lauren an anxious text message about pre-sale concert tickets to see The xx at UC Berkeley’s Greek Theater. Being the nice (income-earning) sister she is, she offered to buy two tickets so we could go on a sister date. Although the concert is months away (June 1st), I can’t contain my excitement.
Over the past few weeks, I have been listening to The xx’s newest album, Coexist, on repeat. Like actually, every single day.
So, for the second installment of Musical Monday, I’m going to share five of my favorite tracks from Coexist. I could easily say that each song is a favorite, but I’ve tried me best to narrow it down.
The xx – Angels
This is probably the most popular song from this album… and it made it onto Thought Catalog’s “5 Cool Songs to Make Out To.” It’s definitely more on the lovey-dovey side.
The xx – Sunset
I would consider this a more upbeat song by this group. The chorus kills it. “I always thought it was sad / the way we act like strangers / after all we had / we act like we had never met.” It’s a good one.
The xx – Unfold
Not sure why I’m putting this song third because it is easily my favorite from the whole album. To me, it relates to long distance relationships. “Out of sight out of mind / it doesn’t mean your not mine / the feeling goes on and on and on” Give it a listen.
The xx – Chained
This is another more upbeat song from the album. It makes you want to bob your head and tap the table while listening. Or maybe that’s just me?
The xx – Missing
This song is definitely slower, but it is really powerful. The build right after 1:20 is great. Especially with high-quality headphones.
Headphones in, world out.
Question: Sharing time – what music are you loving on this Musical Monday?
