Taking minimalism to the next level with last year’s second LP, Coexist, hot London trio the xx manages to communicate volumes in its elegant, subdued and understatedly sensual tones that should be perfect for the ambient Hollywood Bowl. Able support comes from Portland’s darkly romantic Chromatics, who have seen a spike in support since main man Johnny Jewel was involved in soundtracking Ryan Gosling's Drive.
