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.
