Just because Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington are no longer making music as Darkside, doesn’t mean they’ve stopped working together. Case in point, Harrington has contributed a new track called “Form and Affect” to the forthcoming compilation, WORK, from Jaar’s personal imprint, Other People.
The track is a terrifying slice of ambience, opening with a startling horror movie chord and unsettling drone. Even when the song degrades into a gentle guitar, a fluttering of static keeps things feeling more than slightly off kilter. We’ll give you fair warning: You might want to start the volume at a reasonable level before clicking play below.
