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.
