The collective of Archive was originally formed by Darius Keeler and Danny Griffiths in 1994 from the ashes of the UK breakbeat act, Genaside II. Together with the female singer Roya Arab and the young rapper Rosko John, the band released their first album “Londinium” on Island Records in 1996, a mix of dark trip hop (in a similar vein to Massive Attack), electronica and, naturally, their breakbeat and hardcore roots, but with the unequivocal match of string arrangements and almost baroque and classically influenced songwriting.
First track to be released from Archive’s forthcoming album ‘With Us Until You’re Dead’. Released on the band’s own Dangervisit Records on August 27th 2012. Featuring new vocalist Holly Martin and video directed by legendary graphic designer Brian Cannon.
