Darkstar - "Gold" (video)

3 October 2010

 

Buzz about Darkstar’s eventual debut has been building since the release of the “Need You/Squeeze My Lime” on Hyperdub in 2008. Now, with North around the corner, they’ve released their first single, a cover of The Human League’s “You Remind Me of Gold”, shortened here to just “Gold”.  As the video above illustrates, the song and video are both stunning and early reports suggest that North might just be the best thing to drop from Hyperdub since Burial’s Untrue.
