The xx – “Fiction” Video

Director Young Replicant’s new video for “Fiction,” the spindly slow-burner from the xx’s Coexist, is a visually ravishing black-and-white affair that finds Oliver Sim moodily wandering through an expensive-looking hotel area, like Stephen Dorff in Somewhere. First, he’s stepping over slumbering bodies, those of his bandmates among them, in an indoor suite. Then, he’s out in the woods for some intense swaying. Nothing much happens, but it’s all very pretty and stylish, and you can watch it below.

Coexist is out now on Young Turks.
