Wednesday 26th June
Following two triumphant sold out nights at The Olympia Theatre and the ecstatically received Main Stage performance at this year’s Electric Picnic Festival, those who were there and those who missed it will be delighted to hear that London band The xx announce their return to Ireland next June, playing The O2
“…Every note played was as bright and precisely chiseled as a cut diamond, no matter how subdued the song in which it was set.” Hot Press, Olympia show, Dec 2012
“Understated, romantic and damn near perfect!” The Irish Independent, Olympia show, Dec 2012
The xx are currently riding a wave of success having recently released their second album 'Coexist' to effusive praise from fans and media like. After hitting the No.1 spot in the UK charts and No.3 here in Ireland, they fullfilled one of their long-standing dreams by performing with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, you can listen back here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01mnplv
'Coexist' has been produced by The xx's Jamie Smith and is the follow up to their Mercury award-winning 2009 debut 'xx'. It was recorded between November 2011 and May 2012 in the band's own studio in London.
Irish Independent, Day and Night- **** “xx marks the spot of a newly mature band..highly accomplished second offering that sees the band refine yet further their stately brand of minimal electro-indie”
Totally Dublin-**** “As ever, The xx's spendthrift songcraft and production pushes their (significant) strengths up front, the result is magical”
The Irish Daily Star- **** “A Fantastic new set, adding warmth and depth to their understated sound”
'We're so excited to share with you the news that our second record 'Coexist' is out. After a long time on the road, we took a break, created our own studio and wrote these new songs that we're so looking forward to playing to you. We will be touring throughout the summer and beyond, and hope to play somewhere near you soon'. xx The xx
Mellow, minimalist, shy, ghostly…are The xx, with the sincerity, the simplicity, the undeniable talent, and most of all their ability to leave a whole room of people of all ages in collective awe.
'Coexist' is out now on Young Turks
The xx are: Oliver Sim, Romy Madley Croft, Jamie Smith
