Being a fan of The xx for a few years, I’ve also been a fan of Jamie xx’s work. Jamie xx does a majority of the production and percussion for The xx’s music. His newest album, In Colour, was released on May 29th via Young Turks. “Loud Places” features Romy, who is the lead singer in The xx. Upon listening to it you can see the comparisons to The xx’s music but Jamie makes it completely his own. Aside from the production and instrumentals, I love the lyrics to this song as well.
I go to loud places to search for someone to be quiet with
My favorite line. It’s so simple yet I feel it.
This live performance of this song sounds amazing too! Jamie xx and Co. recently played it live for the first time and it sounds so much to the recording. Give it a listen!
