FEATURING VOCALS FROM THE INCREDIBLE RAE MORRIS
Icarus return with new single ‘Dreams Of You’, featuring British Alt popstar Rae Morris, out now 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 Dublin. A 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.
‘Dreams Of You’ further cements Icarus’ status as one of the UK electronic scene’s most forward-thinking acts.
