Solar Bears

Purveyors of strange, baroque electro with a wonderfully dark edge to it, the swirling music of Dublin and Wicklow’s Solar Bears  would sound just as fitting soundtracking epic retro fantasy movies as it would exuding from speakers in some dance tent at some festival in the middle of the moon-dappled woods.

Though often eerie and dissonant, there’s still something quite natural and organic about their warming electronic sound.  It’s lithe and dreamlike, and rich and lush without ever getting too heavy.  This is music to sway under the stars to.

They are so, so good.  From what I can ascertain, Solar Bears will be releasing some new music relatively soon, so definitely keep an eye out.

You can check out a mixtape they did for from here, and buy their 2010 debut album, ‘She Was Coloured In’ from here.
