Icarus releases ‘King Kong’


Icarus present their first new track of 2017 with ‘King Kong’ out today on FFFR.

If you call a track ‘King Kong’ it has to be a beast, and that’s exactly what Bristol-based brothers Ian and Tom Griffiths have delivered. From the booming bass to the urgent percussion to the vocal’s urgent rallying cry.

“Last year we put out a lot of atmospheric stuff, but with ‘King Kong’ we’ve switched our style again,” explains Tom. “It’s something more experimental and more light-hearted. We don’t want to overthink it too much, and we don’t want to stick to one particular lane because we like writing all sorts of tracks.”

“Hopefully we’re at the stage where we can mix our style up, but people can still tell it’s an Icarus record because people recognise how we write and are used to our production,” adds Ian. “You’ve got to keep things fresh and surprise people.”

There’s much more to come from the ICARUS camp and it excites us greatly!

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.
