Before they were melting hearts on-stage with Solange at Coachella, The xx were undertaking an epic Australian tour. It’s safe to saythat the land of the kangaroo holds a soft spot for the British band — their tour sold out so quickly that second shows were added to the Sydney and Melbourne dates, and their latest album, Coexist, has seen Gold sales.
While they were here Oliver Sim, Romy Madley Croft and Jamie xx kept a photo tour diary for Oyster of their whirlwind week. From an impromptu Timezone set that we wish we saw to true tourist moments (you’re not in Australia unless there is at least one koala and an Opera House) this is what happened behind-the-scenes.

The 2012 edition of the Treasure Island Music Festival brought a host of bands, a 60-foot ferris wheel, interactive art, a silent disco, interesting food, roaming performers and more to the Bay Area this past weekend.

With love from Barcelona: ‘Coexist’ - The xx’s album out on 10/11 September!
We’re so excited to share with you the news that our second record ‘Coexist’ will be released on September 10th (11th in the US). After a long time on the road, we took a break, created our own studio and wrote these new songs that we’re so looking forward to playing to you. We will be touring throughout the summer and beyond, and hope to play somewhere near you soon. xx The xx
