Probably the most buzzed about band of the last five years –if not, then undeniably the coolest— there is no rest for The xx. As part of the iTunes 12 Days of Christmas app, these indie darlings take the stage today and present two free videos as well as an exclusive remix from their album Coexist –all mastered especially for iTunes. As usual when it comes to The xx, that’s not all.
The universally acclaimed euphoric electronic team, Oliver Sim, Baria Qureshi and Romy Madley-Croft, don’t want to rest on their laurels and have been expanding their empire into more than just a band since the very early days. They already have an album to promote, a zine, mobile app, a Manchester residency and –breathe! – an art exhibition but that clearly isn’t enough for this talented bunch. In 2013, they become curators with Night + Day, a series of mini festivals throughout May and June in which they handpick their favourite artists to play and DJs to spin. Taking place in the grand surroundings of Berlin’s Lisbon’s Jardim da Torre de Belem and London’s Osterley Park & House, there’s no doubt this will be a musical spectacle to be remembered. Who else is getting tickets?!
