Ahead of the release ‘News From Nowhere’ on 4th/5th February 2013, Darkstar premiered this first video from the album over at The Guardian. The video, which was filmed at the legendary Pinewood Studios and in a tank previously used on the film 'Skyfall’, features the band underwater startlingly beautiful results.
Amplified Ease received a great reception, Dummy summed the track up perfectly “water-soaked rhythms and undulating sub-bass. The group have shared that they wanted the track’s melody to bypass verse/chorus arrangement to create something mantra-like: and the deconstructed pop hooks of Amplified Ease live up to that aim”
Watch 'Amplified Ease' below..
As well as a full European tour (see dates below) the band also today announce a very special Rough Trade instore, at London's Rough Trade East, Thursday January 31st at 7pm.
