Hot off the back of his rapturously received ’Chroma‘ EP which dropped late last year, London based artist/producer Bearcubs has today announced a new 4 track EP ‘Underwaterfall‘, due for release on 10th March via All Points [pre-order here]. In tandem with the announcement, the title track premiered via Mistajam’s Power Down Playlist on BBC Radio 1 and FADER, who said ”“Underwaterfall,” is a precise exercise in tension and release: one moment, it’s sparse melody, the next it’s an immersive swarm of synths and layered vocals“. Listen to the track in full below:
Bearcubs is the immersive, electronic project of 25-year old Jack Ritchie. He’s been putting out material for the past 2 years, and has honed in on a distinctly unique blend of emotive electronic, future garage and lo-fi house music, which has seen him heavily championed across the radio airwaves, with ‘Chroma‘ added to the BBC Radio 1 Introducing Playlist and getting spun by the likes of Annie Mac,Zane Lowe, Danny Howard and Monki. Further support has come from FADER, i-D, Noisey, Mixmag, Majestic Casual, The Line of Best Fit and more.
Cementing their support, Majestic Casual are presenting the forthcoming run of live dates across the UK & Berlin, which sees Bearcubs headline the following dates:
20.03 – The Crofters Rights, Bristol
22.03 – Headrow House, Leeds
23.03 – The Garage (Attic Bar), Glasgow
24.03 – Mono, Brighton
