THE XX | LAST CHRISTMAS (WHAM! COVER)
The way this band can eschew traditional melodies to suit their aesthetic amazes us every time. Today, in the Radio 1 Live Lounge, The xx took to covering a Christmas classic, Wham’s ”Last Christmas”.
They took the festive albeit, cheesy George Michael hit and turned it into a gentle and minimalistic record, with intense, whispering vocals and echoing guitars with a classic beat making it sound nothing less than an xx hit. Check it out (above)!
