“Less is more,” KEXP’s DJ El Toro always says, and few things reflect that statement more acutely than the aesthetic cultivated by The xx‘s Oliver Sim and Romy Madley Croft.

During a stopover in Seattle earlier this summer for a sold-out show at Showbox at the Market, Oliver, Romy and Jamie performed four new songs live in the KEXP studio during the Midday Show with Cheryl Waters. Watch the videos from the session now:
