Genevieve Vincent and Chris James collectively come together as darkDARK, an American outfit who create some of the most impressive dark electro-pop, filled with pulsating synths and complex textures.
This particular release features the uniquely distinctive vocals of French rapper Leonis, and is a song focusing on struggle and second chances.
“‘Sequels’ started when we made this gritty instrumental track inspired by darkness and excess, but we couldn’t create the right top-line for it. It had a few iterations, but nothing was quite right. Then we got inspired by the music we were hearing while traveling in Paris and realised Leonis’ bold, dark sound would be perfect. We added Genevieve’s vocals to the chorus as a counterpoint – a symbol of the false promises referred to lyrically.”
