    <b> Solar Bears </b> - She Was Coloured In

    Since disco’s colonisation by hirsute Scandinavians it’s become far cooler to hoard records with
    galaxy vistas on their sleeves than it should be. Dublin duo Solar Bears may follow a similar path to Prins Thomas et al – stretching sheer synths and languid beats into prog oblivion – but they plot the course with sun spots in their eyes. The results are charming, taking Vangelis-style futurism (‘Twin Stars’), cosmic disco galvinised from overdriven guitar flourishes (‘Crystalline’), and, most gloriously, pastoral romanticism that sounds like it’s been stripped from a decayed VHS copy of Le Mepris (‘Cub’). Totally uncool. Totally brilliant.
