Andy Rourke (The Smiths) is back! D.A.R.K. is an unlikely collaboration between Rourke, The Cranberries Dolores O’Riordan and Olé Koretsky. For the last few years, Rourke and Koretsky have been paired as the New York-based DJ act Jetlag.
‘Science Agrees’ is a moody ride through the dark recesses of the club culture. This album, instantly inviting, reminded me of days long ago when it was easier to stay out than go home. The driving beat and Rourke’s signature counter melodies, alongside O’Riordan’s uniquely sweet and twisted voice, brought back memories – good and bad – of when it meant everything to be seen or seen with. This is the pre-close soundtrack that keeps your attention so that you don’t pass out as you’re coming off your buzz; allowing you to sit in that dark corner of the club, providing just enough constitution to gather your wits and head for the door.
