WATCH THE XX’S WHIMSICAL NEW SHORT FILM, NIGHT + DAY
The 20-minute long Night + Day features personal interviews with The XX, as well as behind-the-scenes footage from the eight-night festival. It also throws in cameos from collaborators Florence Welch, Robyn and Savages’ Jehnny Beth.
As well as live shows, the residency combined film screenings, talks and a number of community-focused projects – all of which were incredibly important to the band. “(It was) a way for us to connect with and celebrate all of the amazing cultural activity happening in the places that we love,” they explained in an accompanying statement. “Brixton last month was a truly unforgettable experience for all of us, so we’re very pleased to be able to present this film to you all.”
