Starwalker – French electro-pop trailblazer Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air) and acclaimed Icelandic composer and musical visionary Barði Jóhannsson (Bang Gang) – will release their self-titled debut album on April 1st, and today they share a new music video for “Holidays.” The album’s lead opening track – which features a blissful, Icelandic choir – gets a beautifully bright and surreal visual treatment, offering a glimpse into a robot’s holiday. Check out the clip below. Dunckel and Jóhannsson have been making music as Starwalker since 2014, today the duo’s forthcoming full-length, and self-titled LP will be available on April 1st via Prototyp Recording & Bang ehf via Sena ehf.
last year, Starwalker premiered the the track “Le President”, and today they share the album’s first single “Everybody’s Got Their Own Way.”
While Dunckel and Johannsson are well known for prior endeavors, Starwalker is by no means just a side project – it is the coming-together of two musicians, creating the music they wanted to make, outside of their other projects. The album intermingles cinematic expanse, intergalactic instrumentations.
Previously released single “Blue Hawaii” paints a chilled portrait of pastels in brushstrokes of breathy vocals and synths. “Radio” incorporates a light dose of seventies swing into a dreamy soundscape, while “Demeter” bounces from a complex drum pattern into an enigmatic and emotional refrain.
