EB Video Co-Premiere: Darkstar – Amplified Ease

Its shimmering loops and undulating melody mark it out as one of the standout tracks from their recent album News From Nowhere–the long awaited and understated follow-up to their 2010 debut North. Now, we’re pleased to host the co-premiere via Vimeo for all our European readers. In an interview with EB junior editor Louise Brailey (for The Stool Pigeon) James Young explained the thinking behind News From Nowhere‘s more song-led, psychedelic direction was “a realisation of stuff that we were doing in the past (…) It was one of our aims: to nail a track in three-and-a-half minutes.”
