Bestimix 144: Solar Bears

Bestimix 144: Solar Bears

Playing tracks by

The Shangri Las, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Cats Eyes, John Barry, Soft Machine and more.

To celebrate the announcement of our new area at Bestival, Slow Motion, we bring you a mix by Solar Bears from Dublin and Wicklow. Formed in early 2009 and named after a Russian science fiction film by Andrei Tarkovsky, the band consists of John Kowalski and Rian Trench who met at sound engineering college. Sharing a love of world cinema, their music combines a number of different influences ranging from electronica to film composers like Ennio Morricone and George Delerue. Their sound is a mix of programming, acoustic instruments, synths and vintage tape machines. The freeform approach of their writing and recording lends itself to varying tones and colours. Tracks often have differing sound sources from each other creating a unique musical experience.

The songs on this mix were compiled by John Kowalski and the mix ends with a rare studio track by Letherette and Bibio
