This Monday gone, the xx played an quiet show on the rooftop of the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Alright for some, isn’t it?
For a band so clearly in love with the dark, you’d assume it’s the lightest non-festival show that they’ve played in some time – in fact, according to Examiner‘s report, vocalist/guitarist Oliver Sims quipped that “It’s so weird to see faces. It’s normally just lights and smoke”.
Examiner also have footage of the group performing ‘Islands’, a highlight from debut album xx. It makes for a nice contrast to this morning’s footage of the band playing smoky new single ‘Angels’ on TV show Conan – you can watch it below.
