The xx - I Dare You

When the world’s greatest love-soaked indie/house act drops a new seven minute music video collaboration with Raf Simmons and Calvin Klein for their single “I Dare You” you bet your ass it’s getting shared all over the internet. The xx are always a band to watch and this new video is no exception. We here at We Are: The Guard are absolutely ecstatic to share this filmmaking masterpiece with you.

 

THE XX - I DARE YOU

The xx’s Southern California homage to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is a perfect encapsulation of the 80’s synth-tinged shoegaze nostalgia that the UK threesome hit on so well.  Every moment of this video is a joy to watch, especially the performance from Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown.  The girl is going to be the new star of the throwback generation.  I mean The xx already are.  Seems to me like a perfect match to me.
