On ‘I See You’, The xx challenged some preconceptions people might have had about them being a “shy” or “introverted” band with a few more expansive numbers, putting that status under the microscope.
On the deluxe version of the album though, you can find a couple of extra gems, including an acoustic version of ‘Brave For You’, otherwise known as the ‘Marfa Demo Version’. They’ve now shared a video for the version, which consists of home movies capturing Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim performing the track against the wall.
But where’s Jamie xx I hear you say? Don’t worry, he’s there. Wait a little bit and he joins the pair for a ramble down the highway. The clip reaffirms the trio’s friendship as they seem to be having a grand old time on that dusty road.
Watch the video for ‘Brave For You (Marfa Demo Version)’ below.
The xx will play Open’er (28th June-1st July), Pukkelpop (16th-19th August), Lowlands (18th-20th August) and Bestival (7th-10th September), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
