The pair made their long-awaited return to the label last April with “Moment In Time”, a single that perfectly encapsulated their distinctive brand of emotive and melodic house. “Only” sees Tom and Ian produce a wistful, piano-infused offering, with a two-step groove firmly rooted in UK dance music.
“We’ve really been enjoying writing at slightly quicker tempos lately. 130bpm+ just feels so energetic to us, and we’ve been feeling inspired by the resurgence of the garage sound, especially with a lo-fi texture to it.
With ‘Only’ we wanted to create something that was melodic and enjoyable in headphones but still upbeat and grooving enough for a club environment. We recently dropped this tune at Printworks and the reaction was great, so we hope we’ve achieved our aim!” – Icarus
Having garnered over 120 million Spotify streams to date, written and produced hits like “October” and “Home”, featuring AURORA, and remixed names like Jessie Ware, Pendulum, Martin Solveig, Wilkinson, and RÜFÜS DU SOL, Icarus are fast becoming one of the UK’s most sought-after dance acts.
Icarus has recently performed a closing set at Anjunadeep’s third label takeover of iconic venue Printworks London. The duo will be kicking off their live tour in Manchester on February 5th and will then head down to London for a sold-out show at Village Underground on February 7th.
