It’s not a proper Valentine’s Day until The xx sings. Wouldn’t you know the UK collective deliver just the sugarless treat with their minimalistic cover of Beyoncé’s “I Miss You” (via Pitchfork). The ultra shiny, new performance was shot at Austin’s The Moody Theatre on Tuesday night amidst their current tour and pits Romy Madley Croft against Oliver Sim in one powerful duet. So, if you’ve got a bag of Hershey’s Kisses at bay, start watching the ruby-glazed clip below — tissues optional.

In related news, The xx recently announced a string of summer dates with Grizzly Bear. Consult their full itinerary once you’re done glueing your heart back together again.
