UK electronic duo Darkstar have teamed up with Empress Of’s Lorely Rodriguez for a new track called “Reformer,” which will appear on a self-titled Darkstar EP that’s set to come out soon. It’s both parties first new material since their full-lengths last year, Foam Island and Me respectively. Darkstar’s James Young explained how the track came together in a press release:
Lorely (Empress Of) came over to our studio, Konk, in North London at the end of summer, where we played through sketches we had. Lorely played a load of her stuff and we’d given her a beat that we’d been playing in some sets and wanted to do something with. She took it to the 4AD studio the next day and laid the top line on it. We got around to finishing it last month and I think she killed it. She’s one of the most capable artists I’ve been in a studio with and a great person to be in that environment with.
Listen to the lush and moody new song below.
“Reformer” is out now via Warp. An EP with more guest vocalists is expected later this year.
