it's funny how this song is used in a movie, a prelude to the uefa euro 2012 and a bunch of advertisements and vimeo videos, but does not actually have an official video by the XX. it should. intro is a fantastic instrumental piece.
the first time i heard this song was in a fan-made uber-cool video about reisbrennen, the biggest meet-up for japanese car fans in germany. yes, today's sunday morning laze will give a nod to my NFSW days and the many awesome videos i crowdsourced from my community, of which i probably wouldn't even know about.
that's one of the big things i miss about working at EA. getting to find out about gems such as this.
