The xx - Say Something Loving

Das neue Album von The xx ist da! Und ah, mein Herz hüpft erquickt vor sich hin, wenn ich die sanften Töne und Stimmen höre. Genau das, was ich gerade brauche. Die Musik erinnert mich an einen sorglosen Sommer, an meinen letzten sorglosen Sommer. An Sommersprossen, kaltes Wasser und nasse Haare. Die Songs von The xx sind wie eine musikalische Beruhigungstablette, die ihre Wirkung nie verfehlt. "Coexist" kam damals raus als ich für gerade mein Abi gelernt habe. So kurz war ich davor, mein Mathebuch einfach aus dem Fenster zu werfen, so kurz! Stattdessen lag ich eine Stunde lang auf meinem Bett und hörte "Angels" auf repeat. Mit dem Subwoofer voll aufgedreht, drangen die Bassfrequenzen in meine Beine, meine Arme, meinen Bauch. Einatmen, ausatmen, nicht durchdrehen. Offensichtlich versuche ich gerade, mir warme Gedanken zu machen. In meinem Kopf sind gerade 30° und draußen liegen ungefähr zehn Meter Schnee. Statt mich dem Winter zu stellen, lausche ich Romy & Oliver wie sie mir aus der Seele singen: "You say something loving, without hesitation it hits me, it hits me. It feels so unfamiliar. Your touch stays on my skin, I feel it start sinking in. Here come my insecurities, I almost expect you to leave. Were you really looking for me? Try your best to reassure me. I wasn't patient to meet you. Am I too needy, am I too eager?"

The xx's new album is there! And ah, my heart jumps up and down in joy, when I listen to the soft sounds and voices. This is exactly what I need right now. The music reminds me of a carefree summer, my last summer.  It reminds me of freckles, cold water and wet hair. The xx's songs are like a musical sedative tablet which never fails its effect. 'Coexist' was published right when I was studying for my A-Levels. I was so ready to throw out my maths book out of the window, so ready! Instead I just lay on my bed for one hour and listened to 'Angels' on repeat. With the subwoofer turned on, the bass frequencies sank in my legs, my arms and my belly. Inhale, exhale, don't panic. Obviously, I am trying to think of warmer times. In my imagination we have 30° but outside we have about ten metres snow. Instead of facing the cold of the winter I listen to Romy & Oliver and how they really struck a chord with me: "You say something loving, without hesitation it hits me, it hits me. It feels so unfamiliar. Your touch stays on my skin, I feel it start sinking in. Here come my insecurities, I almost expect you to leave. Were you really looking for me? Try your best to reassure me. I wasn't patient to meet you. Am I too needy, am I too eager?"
