Melodic punk band Darko have released their new music video and single "Hiraeth" from their new album Bonsai Mammoth.
Regarding the new single, guitarist Rob Piper said, "It's been really humbling to receive such positive reaction from all our fans and friends so far. We have been working up to this release for a while and I'm so excited to hear that people are enjoying the new single."
When Darko hit the studio to record their new album, they did so with a whole new perspective and worked with producer Daly George (Creeper, Milk Teeth, Giants) who helped them nagivate through a new approach to songwriting and encouraged them to experiment with new sounds and ideas.
"We felt a lot more relaxed recording this album compared to (the) last EP's and hopefully that comes across," said guitarist Chris Brown. "It certainly made things run smoother for me. We also had more time to mess about with sounds and effects that we don't normally do, as well as giving me time to work on my right-hand technique for the technical sections."
