ICARUS – ‘ECHOES’
RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW 

LISTEN TO ICARUS ‘ECHOES’ HERE

Bristol’s forward-thinking, genre-twisting duo ICARUS are back and as unpredictable as ever with their brand new track ‘Echoes’.

Almost uniquely versatile, ICARUS are equally adept at crafting tracks across the board, from deep, underground club tracks to crossover airplay hits and more experimental fare. ‘Echoes’ falls firmly into the first category, a sprawling six-minute groove which surprises and evolves in a creative progressive style. Atmospherically, it feels like the soundscape to an extended road trip as dusk drifts to dawn.

“We wanted to challenge ourselves to write an instrumental track that evokes feelings without the use of any lyrics. To us it represents a journey, with evolving landscapes and changing colours as the music progresses.” 
ICARUS

‘Echoes’ is the first result of ICARUS’s latest project, more details of which will be unveiled soon.

Since debuting in 2015 with the ‘Don’t Cry Wolf’EP, ICARUS have progressed from being a hotly-tipped name to become a regular fixture on daytime radio. Annie Mac has been a long-term admirer, not only picking four consecutive singles as her Hottest Record (‘Love Has Come Around’,‘King Kong’, ‘Trouble’ and ‘No Sleep’) but also booking them for her Lost & Found Festival.

ICARUS’s other radio highlights include a sun-scorched set at Radio 1 Live in Ibiza and contributing an Essential Mix for Pete Tong. In addition to Annie Mac, their other supporters at radio have included Pete Tong, Phil Taggart, Danny Howard, MistaJam, Monki and AliceLevine. Their wide-ranging list of fans also includes Pendulum, who invited them to remix their classic track ‘Tarantula’ from their all-star collabs album ‘The Reworks’.

Earlier this year, ICARUS debuted their full live band show, which they then took on a headline tour and then to the South West Four Weekender. They’re now poised to hit the road with Rüfüs DuSol on their ‘Solace’ tour: first with a run of NorthAmerican shows which culminates with three nights at New York’s Terminal 5, and then as special guests on the following UK dates:

November
29th – London, Printworks
30th – Birmingham, The Mill

December
1st – Glasgow, Queen Margaret Union
2nd – Manchester, Academy 2

ICARUS ‘Echoes’ is OUT Now via FFRR.
