After the avalanche of adoration for their 2009 eponymous debut, it was understandable that The xx’s 2012 follow-up, Coexist, was a woozy, morning-after album that laid low with the drapes drawn. It took nearly five years for the London trio to let the light back in with I See You, released in January — a delicious recovery of a record that marries throb, sob and get-on-with-the-job with xx-quisite touch and the band’s signature sonic restraint. So much of The xx is about simply getting out of the way of the finely grained voices of Oliver Sim and, especially, Romy Madley Croft. Together and alone, these staggeringly transporting timbres are wounded diaries deliberately left open to be read. Stark beats, lurking (and sometimes surprisingly cheery) keys and Sim’s skeletal bass lines offer tacit emotional endorsement from a deeply tactful distance.
