We’re happy to announce the release of Darkstar’s third studio album, titled ‘Foam Island’. The track ‘Pin Secure’ is available to stream now and to download with pre-orders of the album.
‘Pin Secure’ is a mutated, Darkstar filtered version of electronic Neptunes-style R&B, featuring Aiden Whalley’s heavily treated vocals. It hints at the themes stitched throughout the album; political isolation, social disillusionment, ambition and hope against the odds.
Darkstar’s third album ‘Foam Island’ is out now worldwide on vinyl LP, CD and digitally, as well as to stream at the links below,
