With buzzband The xx currently working on the followup to 2009’s The xx debut, it remains to be seen whether or not the young Londoners can avoid the dreaded sophomore slump, particularly considering that when the record does get finished and released it will probably have been a 3-year gap. Everyone’s moved on since then, listening to, say, Florence & the Machine.

At any rate, just to make sure they get their name back into the press and onto the blogs, they’ve offered up a demo of new song “Open Eyes” and yo can check it out below.
