Watch The xx and Savages’ Jehnny Beth perform ‘Infinity’ together

Another huge collaboration hits their Brixton Academy residency

The xx continued their Night + Day residency at London’s O2 Academy Brixton with another collaboration – this time with Savages‘ singer Jehnny Beth.

The band hand-picked a specially-curated line-up for each of their Brixton shows, with Cat Power and Beth performing a solo piano show with them in London last night.

Following Robyn joining them on stage for a cover of ‘With Every Heartbeat’ last week, this time Beth provided lead vocals for a volatile rendition of the track ‘Infinity’ from their 2009 debut album. See footage below.

The trio started the now legendary ‘Night + Day’ series back in 2013 with a run of specially curated gigs in Lisbon, Berlin and London. Now in support of their acclaimed new album ‘I See You‘, they’ve applied the same treatment to their seven London shows. The xx have two more gigs of their ‘Night + Day’ residency at The O2 Academy Brixton before heading to perform at Cardiff Motorpoint Arena on March 17. Tickets are available here.
