Description

“Highly emotive, harmonically sound trip through digitized music that moves to a genuine human heartbeat”
– SPIN

“Darkstar is finding home in a more introspective arena, and it’s a welcome progression.”
– XLR8R

Warp Record’s newest signing presents News From Nowhere, an album inspired by the band’s time spent far from the electronic thrum of London’s nacent grime and dubstep sphere that they previously inhabited on their Hyperdub debut, North.

They launched the project with first single “Timeaway”, which FADER described as having “achingly pretty warmth”. Of that track, the band said it “feels like a good starting point to releasing music again, its very much us looking forward. It’s off-kilter, processed and bubbles and moves right through”.

After touring North across the globe, James Buttery, James Young and Aiden Whalley decamped to a house in the countryside of West Yorkshire, secluding themselves from the distractions of London and writing as a trio for the first time. Ultimately, News From Nowhere is a reflection of the time they spent together there. Eventually proceedings moved from the band’s makeshift digital studio in the house to producer Richard Formby’s (Wild Beasts, Spaceman 3) studio. The songs that had been inspired by English prog-rock and obscure techno and created as loops based on the band’s affinity for hip-hop production (“literally everything from Lex Luger to Geoff Barrow”) grew into sublimely arranged works. In the end, the album arrived at an altogether singular existence, delving into the moments between moments and elevating them to epic, kaleidoscopic heights. So, the journey from Nowhere begins.
