At the beginning of the year, The xx released I See You, and since then, they’ve been touring extensively in support of the album. To celebrate the bond they have with their fans, they’re releasing a series of short films capturing live performances, behind-the-scenes moments of the band and intimate portraits of fans who attended their shows. First up is We See You – Berlin. Directed by Sylvie Weber, the film presents documentary footage of The xx’s headlining set at Lollapalooza Germany in September.
Of the project, Weber said: “In the case of We See You, coming across truly engaged and earnest individuals was not difficult, the vulnerability that The xx expose in their music is the basis for their incredibly close connection to the fans themselves. I think we’ve managed to represent in these four stories the feeling of the many millions who are so profoundly affected by the harmonies of Romy, Oliver and Jamie.”
The band added, “A huge thank you to Sylvie Weber for capturing some truly intimate moments from our show in Berlin earlier in the year, and to YouTube for supporting this project. We’re genuinely moved by the incredibly beautiful portraits of our fans. We see you Berlin. We love you.”
