In the wake of their recent single release, tour announcement and highly anticipated performance on Saturday Night Live, The xx have just unveiled their brand new video.
Travelling to the United States with fashion/documentary image-maker Alasdair McLellan, the video for ‘On Hold’ tells a tale of—lost—love, set in warm sunlight and an all-American high school backdrop.
Glamcult favourites Romy, Oliver and Jamie all play a surprisingly extrovert role, yet holding on to their mysterious touch. Watch the video here, and read the accompanying statement from The xx below.
“Today we get to share our new video for ‘On Hold’ with you! The video is directed by the brilliant Alasdair McLellan, whose work we all adore… It was filmed in Marfa, Texas, a very special place to us, where we wrote and recorded some of our new album.
We have a lot of love and respect for the people of the USA, having played hundreds of shows across the country over the past years. We hope this video reflects just some of the warmth and acceptance we have encountered there.”
