Digitonal's breakthrough album and statement of intent came in the late summer of 2008 after a period of protracted touring and various personal moves which saw the band scattered between Sheffield, Nottingham and London. It marked the introduction of the clarinet as a key instrument in the ensemble with the track 93 Years On, alongside the ever present strings of Samy Bishai and guest musicians including Kat Arney, Joe Aquilina and Niko Tsonev.
Save Your Light for Darker Days is a record about love and loss, poetry and perspective. The title considers what we keep hidden from the world and how that might shape our lives in ways we can't predict.
