Watch The xx’s dreamy new short film, Night + Day

The documentary looks back on their record-breaking residency at Brixton Academy

A dreamy and dramatic new short documenting The xx’s record-breaking residency at London’s Brixton Academy has been shared this week. 

The 20-minute long Night + Day features personal interviews with the band, 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.”

“Thank you again to everyone involved in Night + Day, we are beyond excited to bring Night + Day back again in the near future, hopefully we’ll see you there!”
