“the xx's 'night + day' short film is a love letter to creative collaboration”

↳Dazed :

“Watch The xx’s dreamy new short film, Night + Day. The documentary looks back on their record-breaking residency at Brixton Academy.

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.”

↳Paper :

“Watch the touching short film for The xx’s Night and Day Concert Series.

The documentary is a fascinating look inside one of the biggest musical moments of the year.”

↳The Fader :

“In March, The xx played eight nights at London's O2 Brixton Academy. The band called the event Night + Day, and collaborated with artists like Robyn, Sampha, Florence Welch, and Cat Power. The film features live concert footage as well as behind the scenes footage of the radio shows, film screenings, and discussions that the band held around London.”

“I guess art is the space where you can make the impossible, possible.”
