‘Forever’ is the lead single from Dark0’s upcoming Oceana EP, out this Friday 28 October via XL Recordings / Remote Control.
The 25-year-old’s debut for XL describes the unstable relationship Dark0 shares with his environment, narrating the story of his city’s illusions of grandeur, mired by hypocrisy and a false sense of security. Dark0 weaves this narrative into a stunningly warm, sorrowful, yet optimistic sound creating a real cinematic journey for the listener, as he explains below:
“The video represents the unconditional love I have for the city I’ve lived in forever, but knowing it’s growing ever more one-sided. It’s like that toxic relationship you just play along with because you don’t know any better.”
