Starwalker

Bad Weather - Single SinglePurchased

Starwalker is a brand new collaboration between two electro-pop icons: Jean-Benoit Dunckel (Air, Tomorrow’s World) and Icelandic composer Bardi Johannsson (Bang Gang, Lady & Bird). The title Starwalker – suitably spatial and curious – is an umbrella term for the duo’s new works together. Included in this blossoming canon is the debut single ‘Bad Weather’. For Dunckel and Johannsson, Starwalker represents the coming-together of two distinctive styles, voices and personalities, and an audio-visual adventure we’re invited to enjoy as it gradually unfolds. Starwalker is shadowy, poetic, vibrant and complex, and, sure enough, within the secret landscape this duo has created, there are surprises for those who engage. Dunckel and Johannsson first met in Paris, and this recent meeting of minds has already resulted in some seductive work, developing like “emotional mushrooms”, as they put it, “growing with feelings in studios, blooming on CDs, Facebook, vinyl or anywhere else.” The Starwalker project is in part inspired by both the unpredictable nature of Iceland and the clean, classic design of France, and the result pulls you in with its intensity. That is not to say the duo lack a lightness of touch or a sense of humour, however. On being asked how Starwalker came about, the response was simply that “two artists were put in a blender” and this was the outcome. In this era of instant gratification and low attention spans, Starwalker is refreshing in its mysteriousness; we are made to wait and wonder as creations are unveiled gradually. The process can be tracked on the Starwalker Facebook page, and the results are worth the wait.
