The xx at Manchester International Festival
The xx and band members Romy, Jamie and Oliver won critical acclaim and a Mercury Music Prize with their debut 2009 album, xx. From the same London school as Burial and Four Tet both literally and musically, the trio released their second album Coexist in September 2012.
The band are currently in residence at the 2013 Manchester International Festival, performing in a secret and intimate space for just 60 people at a time.
The Review Show was given exclusive access to record the group in this uniquely atmospheric setting. Here they perform Fiction, from Coexist. A second track from the performance, Angels, can be seen on The Review Show on Sunday 14 July at 8pm on BBC Four. The programme is also available on BBC iPlayer after transmission.
