Digitalism - I Love You Dude

I Love You, Dude, the sophomore album from Digitalism is out on July 5 via V2 / Downtown. The album features 10 tracks, each of which has their own vibrant identity. This is the sound of a band welding dancefloor pugilism onto crafted sonic sculpture. They set the bar high for themselves, and deliver with an amazing album featuring tracks like “Forrest Gump,” co-written with Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas, “Circles,” with its Who-ish keyboard and apparently existential lyrics, and standout pop single “2 Hearts.”

This record is the follow up to their ubiquitous debut Idealism - if you were at a party at any point in the year that album drop, you are familiar with Digitalism’s tunes as they were blasted out of every home stereo and club soundsystem across the globe from here to Japan.
