The xx are known for some fairly dark music, but Jamie xx’s new solo tune, “Girl,” is a much brighter affair with its chugging bass and shiny synth. It begins very much in the electro-pop vein and quickly morphs into synth pop before it surrenders to a post house sound during what we assume is the chorus. The reason we say we assume is because the vocals throughout the song are distorted/heavily processed (you can’t understand a word of them), so it’s hard to discern what parts are the verses and chorus. There’s also the possibility that Jamie didn’t intend for the song to even have a verse chorus verse structure. Regardless, it’s a super pleasant listen and would make a nice interlude on your next playlist.
