The minimalist British pop group return to Japan in 2018 for a handful of solo shows following on from a spectacular stage at Fuji Rock Festival last year. Formed in 2005, The xx is comprised of three school friends – Romy Madley-Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith (better known as prolific beat maker and producer Jamie xx). After the success of their debut album in 2009 the band toured extensively, earning themselves a Mercury Music award along the way and garnering widespread media attention as their international fan base grew. In January 2017 they released their third album I See You, a continued development of their typical dreamy pop and indie rock style with dual vocals and ambient beats underlying strong basslines and echoing guitar. The group is considered by many to be some of the best contemporary live performers around, so don’t miss this one!
