DARKSTAR - Release Third album 'FOAM ISLAND', 25th September

The album deals in contemporary electronic­-pop interlaced with powerful statements of community, society and hope in the 21st century. The duo are streaming album track ‘Pin Secure’. The song is a mutated, Darkstar filtered version of Neptunes-style R&B, with Aiden Whalley’s heavily treated vocals integrating perfectly with an atmospheric yet direct beat.

It also hints at the themes stitched throughout the album; political isolation, social disillusionment and personal ambition.

Throughout their career Darkstar have proved themselves to be one of the forerunners of the UK electronic scene. They’ve collaborated with the likes of Actress, Zomby, and Wild Beasts; their early 12”s ‘Need You’ and ‘Aidy’s Girl Is A Computer’ are regarded as seminal; and their previous albums North on Hyperdub and News From Nowhere on Warp were both met with critical acclaim.
