[video] The xx - "Islands"

Official video for "Islands"

The xx have emoted their noir-persona yet again in the music video for "Islands." Multiple camera takes capture the band quietly singing my personal favorite while choreographed dancers act out the evolution of a failed relationship. A bit repetitive, but interesting once the song climaxes. Also, the xx will conclude their North American tour with a few more dates on the East Coast. The last date, at DC's 9:30 Club, will be steamed live on NPR (go here for more details).

The xx tour dates:
Apr 22 // Terminal 5 // New York, NY
Apr 23 // Sonar // Baltimore, MD
Apr 24 // 9:30 Club // Washington, DC
