We've watched Icarus pave their own way in the electronic space for nearly five years now. And the brotherly duo has done so with a uniquely grounded, organic sound that also takes a note of grit from their notorious hometown of Bristol. While in the past, we've seen tunes that are vast in their expanse and groove, their latest EP - a 5-track work named In The Dark - takes them in a new direction.
Opening with "Love Has Come Around," we hear new 80's-leaning synth inspirations, and direct takes from disco for a track with an interesting dichotomy between their usual subtlety and music from these more in your face eras. "No Sleep" comes in as the EP's stand-out, with soothing piano, vocal sampling and an ethereal ambient feel. Check it all out above.
