From the outlandish high energy vibe of their FFRR debut ‘Ride This Train’ to the ethereal ‘Home’ and the nocturnal cinematic scope of ‘October’, ICARUS have proven to be impossible to second guess.

In the space of fewer than a dozen tracks, the Bristolian brothers Ian and Tom Griffiths are firmly established as sonic adventurers who can weave rich emotive soundscapes as effectively as they can create exuberant, hook-laden crossover productions.

No wonder that Radio 1’s Annie Mac has stated that ICARUS are “fast becoming the masters of emotive dance music”, while Danny Howard affirmed “these boys are on fire.” In addition to Mac and Howard, ICARUS’s eclectic ability has earned further Radio 1 support with multiple plays courtesy of Pete Tong, Monki, Mistajam and Phil Taggart. In the process, they’ve landed three Hottest Records in the World: for ‘Home’ in January 2016, their edit of Arle’s ‘Close To You’ almost a year later, and for their new track ‘King Kong’.

Asked to pick highlights from their DJ sets to date, both pick a memorable night at the Relentless Stage at the Leeds Festival as a firm favourite. “Halfway through our set there were like 8000 people there, but more just kept coming and coming,” reminisces Tom, “and by the end it was between 12-15000! We didn’t really know what to expect, but there were people going crazy as far as the eye could see.” Other highlights include sets at Fabric, Lovebox, The Warehouse Project and hometown parties at Motion.
