After such a successful and distinctive first album, The xx are gearing up for their sophomore effort, Coexist. So far we’ve had little insight into what the album is going to sound like, but singer/guitarist Romy Madley Croft had some words about the project for NME.

“I’ve been thinking that I hope people enjoy it as a separate thing. The first album exists – we’re not trying to make it again. We’ve just grown up, and although this isn’t a ‘grown up’ album, we’ve evolved. It’s just us growing a bit more. I hope people enjoy it as a continuation, rather than us trying to make the first album again.

Rory added that she’s happy with the trio’s progression. Coexist is set to drop on September 11.
