Los Angeles, Pure Groundthe electronic music duo famous for their powerful industrial-ebm music, tinged with dark folk / dark ambient elements.

Now the pair are back with a split-album realized together with Luminance, the solo project of DA, a French artist based in Brussels, who has already quite an extensive discography in the dream-synthpop-darkwave style.

Each band takes one side of the album and with the final track on each side being a collaborative song. and ahead of their Berlin gig tomorrow, Pure Ground are premiering “Last Stand”, one of these 2 collaborative songs on the record.

On the track, Pure Ground composed the music while DA—has provided vocals and additional synths. The track combines the industrial, pulsating rhythmic foundation which is typical of Pure Ground, with the eerie, psychedelic feeling of Luminance.

Copies of the split release will be available on tour—-you can also order the vinyl here.
