The UK's Darkstar went from being a Hyperdub-signed post-dubstep trio on their debut LP North to a Warp-signed ambient pop trio on its followup, 2013's News From Nowhere. They're now working on its followup, which they say "feels like elements from our older dance floor productions and our more recent song arrangements are coming together" and that "the beats are a lot heavier."
No word yet on when we'll get to hear music from that new album, but maybe we'll get a taste of some of it when Darkstar return to the US this spring. They'll be here for Moogfest, and after that they'll do a few club dates including one in NYC on April 30 at Glasslands. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (2/21) at 10 AM.
All dates are listed, with a video from their last album, below...
