ALL POINTS EAST: THE XX (VIP)
THE xx / LORDE / SAMPHA / POPCAAN / LYKKE LI / REX ORANGE COUNTY
All Points East are supplying the beats, The xx are up.
With new material, the Guardian have marked the drop as The xx "stepping out of their own shadow", it's clearly truly lit. The album in terms of art is aptly titled, I See You mirroring the gradual climb and colour the tracks undress through horns, etches, zig zags and synth blips.
The xx emerged with a new, hyper-emotional brand of RnB with their debut album in 2009, described by Pitchfork as "seductive songs set to spare but effective arrangements". Stamping their bold white cross across a whole new generation, Romy Madley-Croft and Oliver Sim's sultry vocals became instantly recognisable.
A live show guaranteed to go off.
Lineup subject to change.
Presented by All Points East.
This is a 16+ event (under 18s must be accompanied by an adult).
