Icarus – In The Dark
Bristol-based duo Icarus have been forces in dance music for several years now. Since the inception of their ‘Don’t Cry Wolf’ EP back in 2015, they’ve gone on to land four of Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Records’ (a new record), earned millions of streams with hit singles like ‘Close to You’ and ‘October’ and headlined a European tour. Icarus’ latest single, ‘Love Has Come Around‘, was their fourth consecutive ‘Hottest Single’ on Annie Mac, quite an achievement for the still-relatively-underground duo. Now, they’re back with the full ‘In the Dark’ EP.
The 5-track EP takes listeners on a journey through the highs and lows of a relationship. The upbeat ‘Love Has Come Around‘ captures the blissful rush of a new relationship and the darker ‘Flowers‘ signals the more ominous aspect of a relationship-gone-wrong. While the overall theme of the music remains consistent, Icarus don’t pigeon-hole themselves to one particular sound, a hallmark of their releases generally. With several big tour dates in the UK this summer, it’s clear that Icarus have only just cracked the surface of what they’re poised to achieve in music.
