Jamie xx Enlists Bandmate Romy For New Solo Cut, ‘Loud Places’

Jamie XX

Just a day after announcing his new solo record, In Colour, Jamie XX has shared “Loud Places,” a collaboration with xx bandmate Romy Madley Croft. It’s a quiet, dizzying song that builds itself up around Croft’s demure, half-whispered vocals. There’s some tribal drumming, a number of unexpected drops, and stellar backing vocals to boot. Stream it below, and look for In Colour in June, though if you have the patience to sit through minutes-long batches of TV test pattern sirens, you can hear snippets of the entire album on Jamie XX’s website right now.
