Solar Bears - Supermigration

Journeying into stargazing oblivion
Solar Bears - Supermigration

Solar Bears are making a cosmic habit of these dystopian space operas. Where ‘She Was Coloured In’ evolved into an eerie, neon futurama of roaming sentinels and circuit-board landscapes, ‘Supermigration’ continues the penchant for journeying into stargazing oblivion. Panoramic builds and Vangelis-styled odysseys stir the dreamy landscapes on ‘Cosmic Runner’, and the feather light-melodies on ‘Love Is All’, but it’s the insistent chug of ‘Happiness Is A Warm Spacestation’ and the surging electronica on ‘A Sky Darkly’ where Solar Bears hit hardest. For all of John Kowalski and Rian Trench’s accomplished textures and impressive ’80s sci-fi sheen, it’s these simmering, slow burning heavyweights that give ‘Supermigration’ the thunder it needs.
