The XX - "Chained" video

In the xx’s new video for “Chained,” one of the standout songs from their new album from Coexist, we see the group’s three members as they plunge, in extreme and near-fetishistic slo-mo, into a giant swimming pool. The whole clip is gorgeously shot, and it’s a small triumph in design and composition. Young Replicant directs; watch it below.

Coexist is out now on Young Turks.

  1. the video fits the song perfectly, but i cant help but feel disappointed everytime I hear a record from this album, such an overrall letdown from their debut.

  2. This video is a lot like their new album. What was the expression? “Beautiful but boring.” I was kind of underwhelmed by the whole thing.

  3. Filmed in the Jubilee Pool in Penzance at the end of August……

    Cool or what?

  4. Why you swimmin?
