5 Things Artists Need to Know by Icarus

Share

Icarus has recently dropped their career-defining new project: Unfold. Characterised by polished, weightless electronica that’s both visceral and drenched in emotion, UNFOLD is undoubtedly Icarus’ finest work to date.

Characterised by polished, weightless electronica that’s both visceral and drenched in emotion, UNFOLD is undoubtedly Icarus’ finest work to date. Opening with title track ‘Unfold’, a delicate and intricate production featuring vocals from Tim Digby-Bell of Cubicolour, other standouts across its nine tracks include the duo’s latest single ‘Fade Away’, a fluttering soundscape that masterfully incorporates elements of trance and house music, the melodic ‘Meet Me There’, which features the heartstring-tugging vocals of London singer-songwriter Nathan Bell, and the controlled euphoria of ‘Joy’. Elsewhere, UK singer-songwriter Rae Morris lends her soaring vocals to the poppier ‘Dreams Of You’ and the project’s closing track ‘Tomorrow’ sees Icarus at their most experimental.

The concept for this body of work revolves around transformation, growth and evolution of self,” Icarus previously explained. “We currently feel we’re at a juncture in our lives both personally and in a career sense. Over the last few years, people have entered and left our lives and we’ve both been through things that have made us grow significantly as people. 

“This is our biggest and most important project to date and we feel that it not only marks the closing of a period of time but signifies a fresh, new and exciting one. These songs represent how our lives, personalities and ever-changing selves UNFOLD.”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
