You’ve Got The Love – The XX (Theophilus London Remix)

15 Mar

You’ve Got The Love has been has been an undeniable success. However, The XX’s version featuring Theophilus London is a whole other ball game but don’t worry. I’ve got you covered (yes I just made that joke). Have the three-piece band (the fourth member in the picture is Baria Qureshi who left in late 2009) been able to replicate the same emotion that shone through in Florence’s version?

The answer is no. Not the same emotion anyway. I found the The XX’s re-working of the track very refreshing and relaxing. More importantly, this is the XX that we know: downbeat with softly meaningful vocals. Theophilus London also features, and the man has an undeniably cool part in this song. His deep voice ebbs and flows along with the beat, making this track one that needs to feature on any playlist that you stick on as you drift off to sleep. Listen below:
