A new documentary from The xx has been released to coincide with the launch of an online archive from independent label Young.
The archive includes a new documentary by Jamie-James Medina on The xx’s 2014 shows at New York’s The Armory, where they played a run of 25 shows for just 40 people at a time.
A statement at the time said the gigs would be “uniquely voyeuristic and deeply personal” and defy the “perceptions of a traditional concert”.
You can watch The xx perform ‘Shelter’ as part of the New York shows below:
‘Young then’ also features unseen sets from a 2011 SXSW Boiler Room from Jamie xx, Sampha, Mount Kimbie, and others.
Elsewhere, there are also new recordings of Koreless performing with a string quartet at BBC’s historic Maida Vale Studios, as well as some rare performances from FKA twigs and Caroline Polachek, and a conversation between Young’s founders about the label’s origins.
Young has also announced a vinyl reissue of Sampha and Jessie Ware’s ‘Valentine’.

The Paris festival will take place across four days – an extension to the normal three day event – between August 25-28, 2022 at the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud. You can buy tickets for the festival here.
