Darkstar and James McVinnie

Part of New Music Biennial

Hear the landscape and community of Hull reflected in a new piece by Darkstar, the electronic music duo made up of James Young and Aiden Whalley, performed by organist James McVinnie.

Darkstar gained critical and popular attention with their single ‘Aidy's Girl is a Computer’, which combined elements of grime, dubstep and synth-pop. More recently, they have scored the Palme d’Or-nominated short film Dreamlands and collaborated with Gaika and Empress Of on their Warp Records EP Made to Measure.
