Darkside - "Liberty Bell"

The duo of Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington have resurrected their Darkside project with the announcement of a new record and a new song which is out now!

2020 was already a busy year for both members of Darkside. Nicolas Jaar released two albums under his own name as well as another under his Against All Logic moniker and Dave Harrington released a record, Tura Lura, with the trio Harrington, Gustin & Zahn. Now, at the tail end of the year, the duo has revived Darkside, their electronic-psych project under which they released 2014's fantastic Psychic before things came to an end. Now, they're back with a new single and an album on the way. "Liberty Bell" is our first taste of new music from the upcoming record, titled Spiral, and it has a strong sense of movement that picks up the groove and gives some new dimensions to their cosmic sound. A vibrant acoustic guitar solo weaves its way into the tail end of the song, giving it even more life and shape and adds some weight to the otherwise drifting tones. It's a welcomed surprise return from the group and gives strong indications that their revival will be a bright spot in the new year.

Spiral is out Spring 2021 via Matador.
