Foam Island, the third studio LP from Darkstar, is a beautiful contemporary electronic pop album, dealing with powerful themes of ambition and hope against the odds in the 21st century.

Since their early dancefloor 12s on Hyperdub from 2008 and through two vocal-led albums in 2010 and 2013, Darkstar have been an influential force in the UKs electronic scene. With the release of Foam Island they prove, as we move into the second half of the decade, that they remain at the cutting edge of artists pushing its form.

Following collaborations with the likes of Actress, Wild Beasts and Zomby, and taking cues from peers such as Jon Hopkins and Four Tet, it is an ambitious record, buzzing with the energy and excitement of all the possibilities inherent in electronic music in 2015. Yet it is also one which has been shaped by the prevailing social and political climate at this point in time. The band say: its a culmination of everything weve written up to this point, the club and electronic side but also trying to tell a story.

With Foam Island Darkstar have created an album which could only have been album with a voice that encourages a generation to stand up and be counted.
