New Music: Daedelus – Brightest Star Tonight

Daedelus for me has been the soundtrack to many a late-night after party so I was excited to see the American electronic artist had a new track out.

Brightest Star Tonight is something of an electronic odyssey. Layered and lively, it’s punchy compared to a lot of his sprawling soundscapes I’ve heard previously. An understated beginning slowly builds as the various electronic melodies start to coalesce at the track’s climax.

The track is being released as part of volume 5 of the Road Angel Project. Road Angel Project is an ongoing series of releases spearheaded by vocalist and songwriter Inara George of The Bird and The Bee in conjunction with and benefitting the Sweet Relief Musician Fund’s COVID-19 Fund. Volume 5 of the project is also out today. You can find more information about the charity on their website.

If you’re a Daedelus fan or you’re coming to him for the first time, check out Brightest Star Tonight below. You won’t be disappointed.
