Darkstar: A Good Year For The Roses

The West Yorkshire band explain how they left the riots to record the year's most haunting, colourful album in this Dazed film

After writing their devasting, melancholic first album minutes from London's murder mile, Darkstar moved back home to rural West Yorkshire. There they worked with Richard Formby, and discovered a new, colourful, precision take on British electronic psychedilia. 'News From Nowhere', which you can listen below, has been heralded as an instant classic across the board. The week before release, James Buttery, James Young and Aiden Whalley went down to Alexandros Pissourios's studio in Hackney Wick to record the above film for Dazed Digital, and we hope you enjoy it.
