Darkstar ‘Stoke The Fire’



Warp duo Darkstar have unveiled a new video for a track taken from their recently released album ‘Foam Island’.

Titled ‘Stoke The Fire’, the pairing drafted in Cieron Magnat to direct the cut’s official video with focus being the residents of Huddersfield speaking out about the social aspects of their surroundings as band member James Young explains: “Cieron travelled up to West Yorkshire to document the people that contributed to the record. People over the space of three months who have become an intrinsic part of not only the record but also our lives. They allowed us to document their day to day living and the video Cieron has produced encapsulates that. We are overwhelmed with the result and believe he’s captured the process and journey of making this album perfectly”

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.
