REVIEW: Icarus - Hiding out on Anjunadeep

Bristolian duo Icarus a.k.a brothers Tom and Ian Griffiths have been one of 2016’s breakout UK acts. Landing on the scene last year with their debut ‘Don’t Cry Wolf EP’ on Parlophone, the pair continue to impress with follow up hits ‘Home’ featuring Aurora (later remixed by Lane 8 and Kölsch) and most recently BBC Radio 1 favourite ‘They Are Not Like You’ alongside Shivum Sharma.

Icarus make a much welcomed Anjunadeep debut with a hallmark bass-heavy house cut in ‘Hiding’, a highlight from this years flagship label compilation ‘Anjunadeep 08’.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Anjunadeep is one of the most groundbreaking record labels with highly distinctive sound with certain finesse and class. For example the latest track Hiding by Icarus is a magnificent slice of bass heavy deep melodic house that combines influences of early 90's house along with cinematic strings, warm electronic synths, vintage melodies and fantastic deep housey catsy vocals that can support the single to crossover and become a commercial success as well. Superb piano chords, hypnotic rhythm and bouncy grooves that you simply want to start to dancing and shaking along with hands in the air. Hiding is another stand out single for Icarus who will reach the top spot at the mainstream charts very soon. #PureGold Love It[/content]
