On the telly: Watch The xx play ‘I Dare You’ on Colbert

Watch The xx play ‘I Dare You’ on Colbert

Backed by images of the sky, they took the ‘I See You’ track stateside.

The xx have got a pretty busy schedule coming up. They’ve got a jam packed festival season including Open’er, Lowlands, Bestival and Glastonbury, and they recently announced that they’d be taking their Night +Day festival to Iceland (it’ll feature Robyn, Sampha, Warpaint, Floating Points and loads more!)

Still, in the run up to all of that they’ve taken to American telly to play a tune on Colbert. Backed by images of rolling skies and underneath atmospheric blue lighting, they breezed through a version of ‘I Dare You’, one of the highlights of their most recent album ‘I See You’.

Watch The xx play ‘I Dare You’ below.
