Icarus return with new single ‘Dreams Of You’, featuring British Alt popstar Rae Morris, outnow via Parlophone / FFRR.
An emotional slice of progressive dance
music, ‘Dreams Of You’ positions Morris’ powerful vocals amidst
flickering arpeggios and euphoric breakdowns. It follows on from February 2019
EP ‘This Must Be The Place’, a
lauded, four-track release that included ‘Echoes’,
a single that hit #3 on the BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart. Prior to that
they released ‘Man of the Land’, a
collaboration which pitted Icarus’
dark, cinematic production alongside transient-themed lyricism from Real Lies and received Annie Mac’s
lauded HOTTEST RECORD accolade.
Launching their LIVE show last year, Icarus have since taken the show on
tour with Rufus Du Sol, as well as
their own 5-stop UK tour in April this year across Manchester, London, Glasgow, Bristol, and
typically stacked summer schedule has seen the duo perform in Ibiza, as well as
festivals including Parklife and Annie Mac’s Lost & Found.
Looking ahead, the band are gearing up
for their 2020 LIVE tour, with shows
to be announced imminently this October.
Made up of Bristol brothers Tom and Ian
Griffiths, Icarus shared a long
journey through the outer realms of electronic music before being signed to Pete Tong’s iconic FFRR imprint in 2015. In the years
since they have embarked on a sharp ascent through the ranks of UK dance music,
cultivating a dedicated following by releasing a slew of fan-favourite tracks.
With hits including ‘October’ and ‘King Kong’,the pair have garnered over 60
million streams and 7x Hottest
Records on BBC Radio One over
the course of their careers. Moving away from single releases in 2018 with
their 5-track EP In The Dark, Icarus
continue to grow and develop in their artistry. Their recent concept EP This
Must Be The Placereceived
critical acclaim, lauded as one of their most accomplished bodies of work yet.
Of You’ further
cements Icarus’ status as one of the
UK electronic scene’s most forward-thinking acts.
