The xx Releases New Demo, 'Open Eyes' (VIDEO)

The xx dropped a new demo track last weekend that's just the right pitch for the calm before the New Year's weekend storm. The ambient track, "Open Eyes," was shared on The xx blog with this simple message: "Open eyes is a demo we did whilst creating our new album, we just wanted to share it with you." No word on whether it will appear on that sophomore album they're currently at work on.
