Biography

Scrapping an entire album is no big thing when your name’s Axl Rose, but when Darkstar decided to reboot their long-awaited debut record at the tail end of 2009, it nearly left the duo (multi-instrumentalists/producers Aiden Whalley and James Young) homeless.

They eventually regained their footing after a couple eviction notices, though, as sessions with an old friend (singer James Buttery) led to an entire LP as a trio. Not the kind of robot love album everyone’s expecting based on Darkstar’s breakthrough single (2009’s “Aidy’s Girl Is a Computer”), either. More like a moody synth-pop opus that channels everything from OMD to Kraftwerk.

Or as the Guardian already put it, North sounds like “Thom Yorke made an album with John Carpenter.”
