Jamie xx – “Sleep Sound”

UPDATE: You may have already heard this song when it appeared untitled on a Pional mix last year.


While Jamie xx is in the midst of playing an intimate residency of 25 shows in New York with his main band, the xx, he just dropped a new single titled “Sleep Sound.” Built out of soft beats, a faintly squeaking melody, and a few monosyllabic vocal samples, the track is sparse while room-filling. In other words, it’s Jamie doing what he does best. Listen below.

The double A-side single “Girl/Sleep Sound” is out 5/5 via Young Turks.
