Bear In Heaven faded into my consciousness with the release of their sophomore Beast Rest Forth Mouth back in 2009 courtesy of Hometapes. The krautrock synth hooks and an electronica setting similar to Hot Chip, the album was a slow burner yet instantly memorable. A few months back it was announced that a new release was on the cards and, being the absolute hipsters they so clearly are, they released a preview track at a speed of around 4000% slower than the true recorded version.
Thankfully, the band have nought us back up to speed with the formal release of their new song ‘The Reflection Of You’. The track contains the same kind of apathetic vocal delivery, yet the synths are now reminiscent of the 2009 Brooklyn indie-electronic scene (Merriweather Post Pavilion, et al). Give it a listen underneath. The new album – I Love You, It’s Cool – will be released on April 2nd via Dead Oceans/ Hometapes.
