Consequence Of Sound has a full-EP stream of darkDARK‘s Heathered, comparing the duo to synth heroes S U R V I V E. “[S U R V I V E has] tapped into a nostalgic fascination with the darker side of synth music and helped bring it to the masses. Their take on the sounds, however, has been very intentionally cinematic; what happens when you take that evocative aesthetic and update it with modern electropop sensibilities? Well, you get darkDARK.” In the article, CoS brings up everything from 70s cinema to Carly Rae Jepsen when describing the darkDARK sound, yet clarifies that “none of that is to say anything about Heathered is derivative; quite the opposite, in fact. darkDARK have managed to harken to all sorts of phases in electronic music’s history in a way that feels wholly original and forward thinking.”
