News From Nowhere


A couple of years ago Darkstar were all over the map with their debut album ‘North’ on the then fledgling Hyperdub label run by Kode9, and after making the jump to Warp the trio are set to return with a second full length titled ‘News From Nowhere’ on February 4th. In the three intervening years the band has obviously moved on, so a follow up to the dark synth pop of the debut was never really on the cards, instead they’ve come up with a completely different record which has been described as ‘somewhat brighter in mood but deeper in feeling and intention’. Wrote in the countryside of the West Yorkshire Pennines and completed at producer Richard Formby’s analog-tooled studio in Leeds, the album is streaming at Warp. Additionally, all pre-orders through Rough Trade will come with an exclusive thirty minute ‘Made In Huddersfield’ mix.
