Icarus is an electronic duo made up of Bristol-based brothers Ian and Tom Griffiths, and formed in 2013
Both Ian and Tom played in bands (Ian on guitar, Tom on bass) prior to becoming enamoured with production while studying music. Toms work varied from metal and rock to a broad spectrum of drum and bass.
Ian, meanwhile, was consumed by his older brother’s mixtapes and D&B auteur LTJ Bukem. Those early tastes have evolved with further inspiration sourced from the soundtrack stylings of Hans Zimmer and Cliff Martinez, as well as a retro-futuristic nod to Eighties production sounds.
Radio 1’s Annie Mac has stated that ICARUS are “fast becoming the masters of emotive dance music”.
They Landed three Hottest Records in the World: for ‘Home’ in January 2016, their edit of Arle’s ‘Close To You’ almost a year later, and for their new track ‘King Kong’.
