We featured these guys at the start of the year, and are pleased to hear they’re back with new music. Turning up the heat from their debut track Badlands, Belfast’s Dark Tropics return with their feel-good new single and video, Moroccan Sun.
Stamping their music as ‘pop-noir’, it’s a lively mix of undeniably catchy rock hooks with undercurrents of mournful nostalgia. Watch the sun-kissed video below, featuring lead singer, Rio dancing away forgotten memories of a passionate romance – definitely worth a watch.
Here’s what Rio on the track: “Moroccan Sun was written as a narrative for my first travelling experience fully on my own” says frontwoman Rio. “It’s letting go of what you believed to be your comfort, your light in life. Understanding that you will always have some constants, but things will change and mould around you, and embracing this brings a new sense of happiness. Taking the step to leave the old behind, move forward into the new and embracing a new chapter.”
Dark Tropic’s creative vision is timeless and classic and we look forward to hearing more from the Irish duo.
