Keeping with the flow of the début kicking it up a gear,
To the rapid pace of XRAY strobes and jaunts encouraged.

XRAY always gets the crowd going creating such an energy
You can see the boys are feeding off. Which worked in favour for the next track,
Can You Give it! Felix Encourages the crowd to start pogoing.
