Live Gig Video: Jamie xx and friends perform ‘Loud Places’ from his debut album ‘In Colour’ on Seth Meyers

Jamie xx released this month an album that will likely go down in the annals of popular history as one of the most polarising releases in electronic and dance music. You can read my essay on the industry’s response here.

An early taster from ‘In Colour’, the single ‘Loud Places’, features the ethereal lead vocals from Jamie’s xx bandmate Romy Madley-Croft, so when the time came to play this live on late night American television, it made total sense to include her, along with the xx’s bassist Oliver Sim, as part of the performance. With a full band and a bevy of gospel backup singers, it’s a feast for the eyes and ears to behold. Watch it below.
