The UK House duo, Icarus, has been all the buzz this year and their groovy global takeover is just beginning. Brothers Tom and Ian Griffiths dropped their EP, This Must Be The Place, earlier in February and their single Sirens has been credited by Annie Mac on Radio 1 as "Hottest Record In The World.” Dropping today is the beautiful, dramatic and simplistic symbol of life set to your own tune that is the “Sirens” Music Video. The song was first tested as the bros opened up the tour for good mates Rufus Du Sol, and the feedback for Sirens was huge. With a bass line that embodies the bubblegum underground, the video matches the song in creativity, vibrance and relatability to listeners. Get the first look here: 

About the track’s inception the duo said, "The original demo of Sirens was actually written about 18 months ago. Before our first ever live show in London, our manager made a playlist of our demos to have on in the background before we went on stage and Sirens was on there. After the show, we had a lot of our friends come up to us and ask what the track was, which prompted us to go back into the studio and re work it. We were lucky enough to test it out live every night whilst on tour in the US with Rufus Du Sol and the reactions we got to it were amazing. Once we got home, the singer, Katie Pearson, came to our studio and added the final touches to the new version and we wrapped it up! It took going away on tour and having those experiences and then coming back to our comfort zone to make it work. But now it really matches up with what we both felt was right for it."
