FRENCH ELECTRONIC MUSIC duo Daft Punk has announced that they are no longer.
In an eight-minute video posted online titled “Epilogue,” the group’s two robotic characters from the group’s 2006 film Electroma are featured and one of them explodes.
The screen then displays: “1993-2021”.
A spokesperson for the duo confirmed the split into Pitchfork music output.
Daft Punk consisted of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter and started music together in Paris in 1992 in a rock band called Darlin ‘.
A British music magazine called their work “silly thrash punk” and it became the name of their electronic music partnership formed the following year.
Da Funk became their first hit in 1995 and two years later saw them donning motorcycle helmets in the Around the World video.
Headphones have become a signature for the band and they have created an enigmatic aura built up by their relatively rare releases and live performances.
