The xx hit murky waters in the video for “Chained” off their latest album, Coexist. Directed by Young Replicant, in conjunction with The Creators Project, the clip captures members Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim as they repeatedly dive in and submerge into what looks like incredibly icy waters. It’s all about the slow motion work, though, which really gels with the track’s bleak, minimal instrumentation. Food for thought: Is there anything this UK outfit can do that’s not depressing? Grab your swim trunks, put on your moody best, and join ’em below.
Coexist is currently available now via Young Turks.
