They’ve worked with labels such as Picture Music, Black Acre and 50Weapons, but this month sees UK trio Dark Sky releasing their debut LP ‘imagin’ via Modeselektor’s Monkeytown.
The first released track off the new album ‘Silent Fall’ is a sombre yet powerful blend of pounding melodic beats and the resonant vocals of Grey Reverend (a previous feature on Bonobo‘s ‘First Fires’). The single is a perfectly-timed release,gently entering the moody sounds of autumn yet maintaining a little of summer’s warmth and euphoria. Already achieving the status of dancefloor favourities, here Dark Sky demonstrate a more experimental approach, daring to evoke uncomfortable emotions to explore the greater potential of bass music.
