We’ve been following Bearcubs (Jack Ritchie) ever since his release of his “Honest EP”. Since then he has been steadily releasing tracks (“Let Go”, “Touch”, “Paper Walls”) as well as producing and remixing for others. His most recent EP was last years’ “Chroma EP”.
This year he’s coming up with a follow-up titled “Underwaterfall EP”. About a month ago he released the first track “Underwaterfall”. The slowly building synths and Jack’s vocals do bring to mind James Blake. Do not mistake him for a copycat however as Bearcubs clearly has his own sound. Just listen to his excellent latest single “False Mirrors”.
