Daft punk, an electronic music duo formed in 1993 by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, has announced their retirement from Music after a 28 year long music career.
The duo announced their retirement in a video titled ‘Epilogue’.
In the video Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, dressed in their iconic robot costumes, bid each other farewell in the desert, before one of them self-destructs.
Their long time PR officer confirmed the retirement.
The socially shy group were usually seen wearing ornate helmets and gloves to appear like robots in most of their public appearances and hardly granted interviews.
They hardly ever appeared on TV.
Despite the social shyness, Daft punk were very easily the most influential group in the dance music genre and their debut album ‘Homework’ is considered a classic in dance music.
The group won a Grammy in 2014 for their song ‘Get Lucky’ with Pharrel Williams and Nile Rodgers.
In more recent times the group worked with American singers The weekend and Khalid on their songs I feel it coming and starboy.
