The xx took the Coachella main stage just after 10 p.m. Saturday night in week 1 of the annual music festival, transferring their intimate songs to a live experience that managed to retain their minimalist allure. Draped in their characteristic all black attire, guitarist Romy Madley Croft and bassist Oliver Sim traded lead vocal duties while stalking the darkly lit stage. The set list contained fan favorites from the band's self-titled debut album, including "Crystalised," "VCR" and "Islands," as well as a cover of the Aaliyah track "Hot Like Fire," featuring surprise guest Solange Knowles (the song kicks off around the 20:00 mark). Check out the full performance in the video below.
