Identical Chords (I)

Sometimes I have a tune so stuck in my head that I think I hear it when it really doesn't sound. That's exactly what happened the first time I listen to this song by The xx, a band I started to explore in greater depth relatively recently.

Pay attention to the track below, VCR, and tell me its opening chord (also serving as the basis for the whole melody) and Glasvegas' Geraldine don't look exactly the same, huh? The xx might have been inspired by this song cuz Glasvegas released their single long before. What do you think 'bout it? Coincidence or plagiarism?

Rather reminds me of The Jesus and Mary Chain's Darklands Album. (but all of them do, so it doesn't count :-)
