Icarus gives an inside look on how they made their latest smash ‘Dreams Of You’, featuring British Alt popstar Rae Morris, in a new behind the scenes video.
The video features Icarus in their UK studio and highlights the production journey, from initial chords, to equipment, to the collaborative process with Rae Morris, as well as the challenges they faced in the process. ‘Dream’s Of You’, which has already garnered Annie Mac’s HOTTEST RECORD on BBC Radio 1 since its 4th October release, follows on from their February 2019 EP ‘This Must Be The Place’, a lauded, four-track release that included ‘Echoes’, a single that hit #3 on BBC Radio 1 Dance Chart.
Launching their LIVE show last year, Icarus have since taken the show on tour with Rufus Du Sol, as well as their own 5-stop UK tour in April this year across Manchester, London, Glasgow, Bristol, and Dublin. A typically stacked summer schedule has seen the duo perform in Ibiza, as well as festivals including Parklife and Annie Mac’s Lost & Found.
The duo recently announced their 2020 LIVE tour, where they will headline three shows in London, Manchester and their hometown of Bristol.
Made up of Bristol brothers Tom and Ian Griffiths, Icarus shared a long journey through the outer realms of electronic music before being signed to Pete Tong’s iconic FFRR imprint in 2015. In the years since they have embarked on a sharp ascent through the ranks of UK dance music, cultivating a dedicated following by releasing a slew of fan-favourite tracks. With hits including ‘October’ and ‘King Kong’, the pair have garnered over 60 million streams and 8x Hottest Records on BBC Radio One over the course of their careers. Moving away from single releases in 2018 with their 5-track EP In The Dark, Icarus continue to grow and develop in their artistry. Their recent concept EP This Must Be The Place received critical acclaim, lauded as one of their most accomplished bodies of work yet.
