Ursa Minor (Little Bear)’s ‘WTF Is Love?’

Ursa Minor (Little Bear)

Little Bear’s London ElectroPop/House outfit Ursa Minor (Little Bear) are gearing up for the release of their new EP, titled Shell. In advance of this five track release they have let slip the EP’s lead track. WTF Is Love, and one of it’s reMixes. It’s evocative stuff.

It’s a deep, deep track. Accompanied by an ominous Acidic burbling the tracks work both a sparse SynthPop/early House mix and Little Bears ethereal vocal line to their fullest. This track has a nice, atmospheric mix of raw Roland drum sounds with vintage House feel and gritty European SynthPop beauty. It’s not even the best track on the EP either! Ular Gray takes things to a Deep House place with his reMix of the track. Even going so far as to deepen the vocals, giving them a haunting, ringing quality that sits well with Gray’s classic, hypnotic, House groove.

Ursa Minor (Little Bear)’s ‘Only You’ cover

ursa-minor-little-bear

Here’s another new tune from London DancePop collective Ursa Minor (Little Bear).

This time it’s a cover, of an absolute Vince Clarke classic, Yazoo’s ‘Only You’, and frankly, it’s beautiful. With an undercurrent of experimentalism with icy sounds, industrial percussion and pronounced vocal effects the track veers into dreamlike electronic soundscape territory but it’s help in place by Little Bear flawless vocal rendition.

Ursa Minor (Little Bear)’s new single

Ursa Minor (Little Bear)

It’s been a fair few months since we heard anything from London based left-field ElectroPop collective Ursa Minor (Little Bear), but they haven’t been waiting their time as their forthcoming new single proves.

‘Droplet Affection’ is a massive, euphoric Pop tune with more heart and soul than you could ever need. Musically ‘Droplet Affection’ comes across as and, almost Balearic, Summer House track played by a live band, which adds a nice live shuffle to the rhythms and gives the Ibiza style hooks and arpeggios a raw power beyond that of House music. All this creates a swirling, uplifting backing for Little Bear’s heartfelt and passionate vocals to cut thorough and take the track even higher.

Ursa Minor (Little Bear)

Ursa Minor (Little Bear) are a London based outfit consisting of Little Bear, Yoshee, Evee and KTP who set about creating a kind of live, House influenced, synthesizer soundscape.

It’s really hard to pigeonhole Ursa Minor (Little Bear), I can definitely hear a root in the heyday of 90’s House and, more specifically, DancePop but they have taken that basis and moved it to a raw, live place. Like a garage Dance act there is an excitement, and urgency, about the real drumming and analog synth riffs and something almost freeform and jazzy in the musicianship. All this makes for a cosmic and compelling backing for the Post-Punky vocals. This is space age stuff but at the same time really down to Earth and, in a world of machine beats and quantized riffs, really human.
