In classic Nero style, another track from their highly anticipated album Between II Worlds has dropped unexpectedly: Dark Skies
A tried and tested cut that’s been heavily featured in their sets for several years now, this once-mysterious track will be recognisable to anyone who’s witnessed them play live. An apocalyptic futuristic doom-coded track entrenched in full strength synths, juicy subs and an electro feel that nods neatly at the French technique while sounding wholly like the Nero we know and love.
This is the fourth new track to be revealed by the London trio. In April they revealed the almost cosmic subdued, 80s-esque album title track Between II Worlds, in March they gave us The Thrill and last summer they gave us the still-thundering Satisfaction. There’s a clear theme of barbed, synthetic sci-fi soul running throughout…. A theme that sits somewhere between Moroder’s worst nightmares and Daft Punk penning a funeral symphony. If Welcome Reality soundtracked the start of a brave new electronic world. This soundtracks that world’s first war. And we can’t wait to hear more.
Already unleashed on Spotify, you can unlock it here on the band’s website. The full album Nero – Between II Worlds is set for release August 28. Pre-orders go here.

What happened to Nero? They used to be good for every tune they put out, the new stuff has been overwhelmingly meh.
