The xx Shares Charming Official Video For “I Dare You”

The xx

The xx came back in a big way this year with their first release since 2012. Their highly anticipated third studio album, I See You, brought the mix of high energy and gentle instrumentation that we’ve come to love from the English indie band. Today, they’ve shared an official music video for one of the albums most popular tracks, “I Dare You”.

This new video for “I Dare You” makes for the third time director Alasdair McLellan has lent his creative prowess to The xx and follows up on the artistically-shot scenes we’ve seen on their other videos such as "On Hold". The video for “I Dare You”, which The xx are calling, “Our love letter to Los Angeles...” follows a romantic narrative of mischievous high schools students skipping school in Los Angeles. Check out the video below and enjoy!
