8 Up­front Arena presents The xx

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Do The Unusual -

Hailed as ‘Bri­tain’s most in­flu­en­tial mod­ern band’ by Bri­tish news­pa­per The Tele­graph, The xx are set to make their de­but in KL in Jan­uary next year. De­spite be­ing known for their min­i­mal­ist in­stru­men­tals and hushed vo­cals, their live shows have of­ten been praised as im­pres­sive spec­ta­cles as the band utilises colour­ful lights and plays unique ren­di­tions of their hits. Fans who caught them in Sin­ga­pore ear­lier this year have to re­think their choices if they’re think­ing of giv­ing this a miss. Bas­sist Oliver Sim men­tioned in an in­ter­view that the Sin­ga­pore gig in July was a ‘stripped down’ ver­sion of the live ex­pe­ri­ence they’ll be bring­ing come Jan­uary.

MITEC, 8 Jalan Du­ta­mas 2, KL (03 7880 7999/tick­etpro.com. my). Jan 25, 7pm. Pre-sale, RM270; reg­u­lar, RM330.
