Secret Sounds Asia are overjoyed to present indie phenomenon The xx with special guest Sampha – Live in Singapore on 25 July 2017 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Formed in London in 2005, The xx are Romy Madley Croft (vocals, lead guitar), Oliver Sim (vocals, bass guitar), and Jamie Smith, also known as Jamie xx (beats, MPC sampler). The trio rose from obscurity to win the 2010 Mercury Prize for their self-produced debut album ‘xx’, sparking a worldwide obsession for their original and intimate sound. Their follow-up album, 2012’s ‘Coexist’ expands on this signature sound and tender minimalist style, best evident in the beautifully fragile lead track ‘Angels’. In their latest offering, 2017’s ‘I See You’, The xx reveal themselves exploring a more playful, eclectic and expansive musical direction, winning over critics and fans alike with singles such as ‘On Hold’ and ‘Say Something Loving’.
As one of the UK’s most soulful rising artists, Sampha has lent his impressive vocal, production and songwriting talents to a range of stand-out releases, working with contemporaries such as SBTRKT, FKA twigs and Jessie Ware, to world-renowned mega stars like Drake, Kanye West, Frank Ocean and Solange. Now, with the release of his debut album ‘Process’, the time has come for the London electronic/R&B musician to bare his soul and tell his own story.
Following two spectacular headline shows here in 2013, The xx are set to bring the house down in their biggest Singapore show yet. Together with special guest and opening act Sampha, this one-night-only concert promises to be an unforgettable experience – don’t miss it!
