Darkside Set Sophomore Album ‘Spiral,’ Drop ‘Liberty Bell’: Listen

News

Darkside is back in the light with the announcement of Spiral, their first album in six years.

The duo, producer Nicolas Jaar and multi-instrumentalist Dave Harrington, made fans everywhere with their spatial and mind-bending blend of electronic instrumentation, psychedelic rock and space guitar, though their output consisted of just one EP; a single album, Psychic from 2013; plus a pair of LP outtakes and the release earlier this year of a live set.

According to a statement from Matador Records, Jaar and Harrington got to work on the record in 2018 and completed it in December of 2019.

Mixed by Rashad Becker, mastered by Heba Kadry, Spiral will be released this spring, according to the venerated indie label.

The first track from it is the enchanting and exotic “Liberty Bell,” which can be streamed in full below.
