  • Iconic electronic duo Daft Punk have split up after 28 years. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo hinted at the news earlier today via an eight-minute YouTube video titled Epilogue. The clip, which shows one of the duo being blown up, is an excerpt from their 2006 film, Electroma. When Pitchfork followed up with Daft Punk's publicist, she confirmed the duo have broken up. The news may come as a shock to fans. Just last April, Daft Punk were rumoured to be scoring Dario Argento's next film, Occhiali Neri. Formed in the early '90s in Paris, Daft Punk became one of the most recognisable electronic acts in history, as famous for their robot suits as for hits such as "One More Time," "Get Lucky" and "Around The World." Watch Epilogue.
    Correction: Daft Punk were only rumoured to be scoring the Dario Argento film. It was never confirmed.
