Irish duo Dark Topics have a sharply poetic feel.
Organic songwriting with a pop twist, their cinematic musicality has a rich sense of melodrama.
There's something epic about new single 'Badlands', a kind of low-key Springsteen feel but re-cast for an Irish landscape.
Recalling London Grammar at their precocious best, 'Badlands' is a fine opening gambit from the mysterious duo.
Dark Tropics comment: "'Badlands' is an attempt to capture the feel of an epic feature film in a three minute pop song..."
The video is rich in imagery, sumptuous in its use of colour - tune in now.
