Watch a Video for "Girl," the A-Side of Jamie xx's Upcoming New 12"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Just a few weeks ago, Jamie xx announced that he would soon be releasing a new 12", a two-track effort called "Girl" b/w "Sleep Sound" (artwork above) that marks his first new solo output since 2011. At the time, he also shared a stream of "Sleep Sound," a song for which he also commissioned an elegant music video that debuted just a couple of weeks later. Now, with the record's release date rapidly approaching, the London producer has revealed another new video, this time for a-side "Girl." The clip is essentially a playfully simple spin on Jamie xx's standard sleeve artwork, as it presents a set of pastel-colored polygons coasting along the screen and intermittently wigging out in time to the song's ethereal rhythms. "Girl" b/w "Sleep Sound" will be available on May 5 via Young Turks, and the "Girl" video can be viewed in the player below.
