DARKSTAR in 2010 are an upgraded model of the Darkstar which released the much loved single ‘Aidy’s Girl Is A Computer’ at the end of 2009. That song, and previous singles ‘Need You’ and ‘Squeeze My Lime’ hinted at a nascent songwriting talent and mastery of oozing synth drones that has burst into life on their debut album, ‘North’, out October 18th. The band have adjusted their focus, adding lead singer James Buttery to the production and writing team of James Young and Aiden Whalley. With the beauty of subtle distortion, their sound blends crunchy, citric synths, baroque strings, piano and tender guitar with vocal harmonies, gently laced with glitches and noise.
London based five piece DUOLOGUE emerged last year from a number of self curated events across the city. Fusing patched up electronic music over stomping guitar-driven marches, rumbling bottom end bass and atmospheric violin and vocals the result is a unique sound and an audio journey of epic proportions. The ethos behind their majestically experimental yet melodic songs is to the serve the sound and make the music centre stage.
MIRACLE is more than the sum of its parts, Deeply, darkly psychedelic as one might anticipate but this is much closer to pop music than the two have ever encountered before. It was never discussed. It just happened. The music of Miracle is an apparition, a leap of faith, an inexplicable birth.
