Psychedelic electronica to remind us of that thing called summer
Released on acclaimed electronic label Planet Mu, the ambient pop on Solar Bears’ follow-up to their 2011 debut ‘She Was Coloured In’ offers psychedelic warmth reminiscent of that mysterious time called summer. Anyone remember that? Get into ‘Supermigration’ and you will soon. The Irish duo are joined by vocalists Sarah P and Beth Hirsch on a couple of tracks, but the instrumentals are the best work here, as they sound more focused and less like ’90s duo Zero 7. ‘Komplex’, ‘A Sky Darkly’ and ‘Cosmic Runner’ stand out, sounding a little like Kavinsky with their sci-fi synths.
