Fans of The xx, our time has come. The xx land in Australia this week! And just in time, Remote Control have released a swag of new stuff to feast your eyes and ears on.
First up we have the video for their next single VCR. Directed by Marcus Söderlund, the VCR clip depicts a sweet young couple having adventures in a dark, abandoned building. Making out, lighting fires and kicking in walls… ahh young love! PS: Keep an eye out for the little monkey at the end.
The VCR single has also gotten the remix treatment by producer Matthew Dear. Have a listen:[audio:http://downloads.pitchforkmedia.com/xx%20-%20VCR%20%28Matthew%20Dear%20Remix%29.mp3]
