Dan Hegarty of RTE 2FM has made 'Go No Matter What' his album of the week and Nialler9 described the track "Chase" as "...a menacing slice of horror film atmosphere with a charging bass line and guitar noise that echoes in the night sky." in his Irish Times New Music roundup. Get this today and have your mind blown!
James Darkin has released a video for his single "Needle Noise" in support of his highly anticipated album, Involved, due later this year. The video is an intense peak both visually and sonically of what can be expected from his upcoming album. Hot Press noted "His first solo effort is a slice of moody electronic richness, where distorted synths mix with pounding rhythms in what's an altogether appetite-whetting taste of what's to come". Dan Hegarty of RTE2XM also recently featured the track as part of 'Thursday's Twist'. Check it out!
James Darkin has a busy 2016 ahead! He's currently in the final stages of mixing the second Funeral Suits album, due later this year on Rubyworks Records. James is also in the studio producing and mixing the Propeller Palms new album also due in 2016. Looking forward to hearing both of these!
