The XX – Angels (Love Thy Brother Remix)

Montreal electronic duo Love Thy Brother has just added another banger to their remix collection. This time, Liam and Conor Clarke sprinkled their unique sounds over “Angels”, a track from The XX’s upcoming album “Coexist” (due out in September).

We knew we were going to remix this track the first time we heard it.

We’re consistently drawn to badass but vulnerable female vocalists like Lana Del Rey, Daughter, & most recently Metric… Romy Madley Croft from the XX definitely fits this bill.  The aching emotion in her voice as she whispers over a stark washed out guitar line is haunting.

We wanted to take that quiet emotion and turn it into something epic

So we layered on the movie sountrack percussion and then built the song out of these almost tropical filter sweeps into into big massive UK influenced 90’s rock lines with a dub vibe.  We hope it hits the same notes
