Speaking about her new album, Romy Madley-Croft of The xx explained the relationship between the album's title and artwork.
“It came from the artwork, which is looking at when you see a puddle on the ground that’s got petrol in it and it looks like a rainbow. I wondered why it was a beautiful thing when it was quite, well not very beautiful, and I Googled it and it said that when oil and water mix… well they don’t mix they agree to peacefully coexist," she told The Vine. Adding: "I really liked that, that two not necessarily beautiful things make something beautiful."
Check out 'Angels' below, now.
