Daft Punk split

by A.P.

Electronic dance duo Daft Punk have called it quits after 28 years.

The influential hitmakers, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, broke the news to fans on Monday in a video, titled Epilogue.

The eight-minute clip features the pair’s robot characters walking in a desert, before one turns to the other and removes his leather jacket to unveil an energy pack. The other presses a button on the pack as his pal walks off, and then explodes.

The footage, taken from their 2006 film Electroma, ends with the dates: “1993-2021”.Daft Punk’s publicist, Kathryn Frazier, has since confirmed the group has parted ways, although no further details have been revealed.

The musicians rose to fame in the late 1990s as part of the French house movement, before blending their songs with elements of disco, funk, rock, techno, and synthpop.They released their first album, Homework, in 1997, and scored hits with singles like Around the World and Da Funk.
