Darkstar Go ‘Through The Motions’
Warp duo Darkstar have unveiled a new track from their forthcoming album Foam Island.
Titled ‘Through The Motions’ the song harks back to the pairing earlier uptempo singles for Kode9’s Hyperdub imprint, shuttling heavily processed vocals through poppier sensibilities. Billed as “an exploration of the state of society today… interlaced with political/social undertones, hard digital rhythms, live percussion and colourful synths” the album follows on from a number of stellar collaborations with the likes of Actress, Wild Beasts and Zomby all joining Darkstar in the studio in recent times. “It’s a culmination of everything we’ve written up to this point, the club and electronic side but also trying to tell a story” the band explain. Sounds good to us!
Set to arrive hit shelves and hard drives September 25th, you can stream ‘Through The Motions’ below.
