Video: The xx – “Brave For You (Marfa Demo Version)”
The reason The xx made a video for an acoustic demo version of “Brave For You” is because it appears on the new deluxe edition of their recent album I See You. The home video-style footage finds Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim playing guitar, then meeting up with Jamie Smith to ramble along some country roads that look like they might be in Texas (Marfa, perhaps?). It’s not essential viewing by any means, but Madley Croft’s demo vocals sound vulnerable and immediate. Watch and compare to the album version below.
