The xx Are An Island

The video for the xx‘s “Islands” (a single off their debut album, xx) saw online release today. The clip–a series of takes of dancers performing a seemingly repetitive piece of choreography–looks a little like the Gap’s Khaki-a-Go-Go ads from the 90s, but with an all-black palette and minus the swing music (the ending is also a lot less cheerful). The band also stars in the video, though they never manage to join their own dance party.
