  • great great great…

    • the ending is quite powerful because of all the repetition leading up to it

      • Malfoy

        So true! I thought it was just going to repeat itself at first.

  • Jessie Lyn

    I love the XX, they’re amazing! This is my favourite song by them, followed by Crystalised. :]

  • not sure that i get this..

  • Kilgore Trout

    great song. I agree, the ending was so great with all the repetition beforehand.

  • simply superb…thanks for share..

  • canadasb

    The base player was the best, where is she at? C,mon son!

  • Really dislike this band. The vocals do nothing for me. But I am in love with the video. Great idea.

    • While I don’t feel the same way, I love that you give credit where it’s due. A lot of people who don’t care for a certain band rule out them and everything they do without a second thought.

  • Droolin

    anyone hear the notorious xx mixtape?

    pretty awesome

    im going to re-watch…..

  • Anastasia

    This video is so so good the second time around. So many little things I didn’t catch before.
