Darkside—the duo of electronic producer/songwriter Nicolas Jaar and guitarist Dave Harrington—returned earlier this year with PSYCHIC LIVE JULY 17 2014, a live document of material from their 2013 debut album Psychic. That was only the first tease of more to come from the duo, who have been on hiatus for more than half a decade. Today, they’ve shared their first new single in seven years, “Liberty Bell,” a downtempo pop/trip-hop track that feels aligned with some of Jaar’s recent work as Against All Logic, but with more of a melodic indie pop sensibility. Hear it below.
This is only the first piece of new music that Darkside have planned for the new year. In spring of 2021, the duo plan to release their sophomore album, titled Spiral. The tracklist and release date for the album have not yet been announced.
