Written by Mike Hohnen on June 7, 2012

Following the announcement that they will be coming to Australia for a brief two-show tour, the ever-changing, chillwaving force that is The XX have demonstrated 5 songs off their soon-to-be-released album during a recent performance.

Titled Coesxit the album is expected to drop this coming September, on the 7th to be exact, and will feature the following 5 tracks: Devolution, Leave, Strangers, Closer and Fiction.

The band caused a huge stir following the release of their debut ‘xx’ in 2009. As a result, all eyes will be watching Coexist to see if it is as equality life changing as its predecessor

The tour kicks off in Melbourne on 18th July and kicks onto Sydney on the 20th.

Definitely worth a listen, and despite the live performance, the quality is remarkable.
