Track review: Icarus “Fade Away”
Hailing from Bristol, the English duo provides yet another taste of their highly anticipated upcoming project, UNFOLD. This time with a new single. Combining their signature trance melodies with influences from electronica and house music, Icarus displays why they continue to rapidly ascend the ranks of UK dance music and make an impact in the dance music community.
The mesmerizing rhythm of “Fade Away” strikes a strong balance between that of a club dance track and one that can also be listened to at home. With vocals from London singer-songwriter Nathan Ball, the song echoes the melodic theme and dream-like quality of their previous single, “Meet Me There’”which is also set to be featured on UNFOLD.
“The concept for this body of work revolves around transformation, growth and evolution of self,” Icarus previously explained. “We currently feel we’re at a juncture in our lives both personally and in a career sense. Over the last few years, people have entered and left our lives and we’ve both been through things that have made us grow significantly as people.
This is our biggest and most important project to date and we feel that it not only marks the closing of a period of time but signifies a fresh, new and exciting one. These songs represent how our lives, personalities and ever-changing selves UNFOLD.”
Given it will be their largest body of work to date, this new conceptual project is sure to make a major impact with its release on March 13. With a complete tracklist revealed already, UNFOLD will also feature the likes of Rae Morris and Digby Bell of Cubicolor. Together with the project, the two have also launched the 2020 LIVE UK Tour where they will perform at venues such as London’s Village Underground on April 23, and YES Manchester on April 24th. The tour’s final performance will culminate in their hometown of Bristol at The Marble Factory, the city’s most popular new venue on April 25.
