While UK trio Darkstar readies the release of its second LP, News from Nowhere, for early next year via Warp, the band has taken the time to talk with Your Truly about the music and perform one of the album’s cuts at Halls Place Studios in Leeds. After a brief chat, James Buttery, James Young, and Aiden Whalley go through a live rendition of “A Day’s Pay for a Day’s Work,” a subdued number full of warbling keys, stripped-down beats, and soft vocal melodies. You can watch Darkstar’s new video before News from Nowhere is released on February 4, below.
