Whether it was written inspired by these moments or to inspire them, there is no doubt that there is something spine-tinglingly Balearic about Ursa Minor’s beautifully executed debut single Droplet Affection. As Little Bear/Gabby Cooke’s stunning vocals soar over the dreamy backdrop of synthy house beats, you can’t help but be transported back to that unparalleled feeling you get as you witness the deep red sunrise of summer.
Ursa Minor are Little Bear, Yoshee, Alex and Evee. They have been getting a lot of attention across the blog world recently and they are now ready to place themselves firmly on your playlists in 2012. With a remix from the excellent Robert Owens in the pipeline and upcoming collaborations with the likes of Jozif and Mikill Pane of Manchester’s Murkage crew, it’s clear that Ursa Minor and Little Bear are no strangers to the dance world either.
Droplet Affection was let loose on the world yesterday through Invader Music and it’s up for grabs here via iTunes, or here on Amazon. There’s a free stripped back version available here via Snipe London: Ursa Minor – Droplet Affection (Stripped) by snipelondon
