German electronic/house duo Digitalism, comprised of Jens Moelle and İsmail Tüfekçi, receded from our #NewMusic intake since their sophomore record I Love You Dude in 2011. Sure, there were remixes here and there floating on their SoundCloud, but let’s face it – no matter how good reworks are, they leave you with leftover aftertaste to a degree. Hence, it’s time to refresh our Digitalism palette with their three new singles “Utopia,” “The Ism,” and “Battlecry”

These three ballads are part of their upcoming third album, Mirage, which will be out on May 13. Oddly enough, Mirage was built in a span of six months and not five years, as some would assume. During the past few years that were spent touring around the globe, Digitalism noticed how EDM hybridized with pop, but instead of jumping into the vogue bandwagon, the duo decided to preserve their sonic poise and ameliorate it with their own neoteric tweaks. They will start their world tour on April:
