The most recent album by The xx was I See You 2017, from there the English band decided to take some time to experiment in their solo projects; It is worth mentioning that with this decision Romy, Oliver Sim and Jamie xxhave grown on a personal and professional level, creating new ideas that today will be reflected in the new material.

The trio sessions feel ‘pretty open’ at the moment. I think Oliver (Sim), Jamie (xx) and I have all tried new things and learned a lot from different projects and I think it’s quite healthy to say: ‘What have you learned? What should we do now?'” he mentioned Romy in it Australia’s Beyond the Valley Festival the last weekend.

There are still no more details about the release date or the name of the album, what is a fact is that, despite the versatility of ideas, Romy He feels that by listening to it “you can still say it’s us.” Follow their social networks so you don’t miss any details. Happy start to the year!
