With the famed residency of The xx at Brixton Academy drawing to a close last night it needed a big bang to go out with. The band had already been joined by Robyn, Cat Power and Savages’ Jehnny Beth, so who was left? Well, Florence Welch of course, to join the band for their epic remix of her Glastonbury glut of good vibes ‘You Got The Love’.
There is very little to say which hasn’t already been said about the residency, it was huge, it was epic and it reached everyone in some form or another. Florence was the last piece of the puzzle, a large mainstream piece of feel-good energy emanating across the capital.
Best take a look for yourselves to see how widespread The xx really are. No longer bedroom popstars they are fully fledged mega-stars.
