The latest FACT mix comes from Dublin-based duo Solar Bears.
Recently signed to Planet Mu, we’ve been listening to this duo’s music non-stop of late – their Inner Sunshine EP, recently released with a remix by Lone, is more than healthy but it’s in their debut album, the forthcoming She Was Coloured In where the real Solar Bears treats lie. Inspired by the likes of Broadcast and Tangerine Dream, it’s an album of gentle synth-pop, swelling ambience and archaic Kosmische and prog that sits nicely next to recent work by Ratatat and Oriol, as well as Boards of Canada and Pivot.
Compiled by the group’s Rian Trench, Solar Bears’ FACT mix features Harmonia ’76, Lone, Kate Bush, Fuck Buttons and more and is sounding pretty perfect to our ears this morning.
