Limited edition pressing of Bearcraft's debut album, Yestreen, featuring TWO exclusive collectable prints by artist Jessica Akerman
From the path of the werewolf we have entered the world of Bearcraft, one that combines spectral synths and electro beats with pagan, scientific, philosophical and English folk themes. Bearcrafts debut album, Yestreen, will be released on Hottwerk Records and is a fantastical, mathematical combination of electro uppers and bewitching acoustic slow-burners, spinning folk yarns with an abundance of haunting melodies and the loveliest harmonies. Take Bearcrafts debut single, The Werewolf, with its hypnotic drum patterns, Gallic disco basslines and cool, disembodied vocals, it tells a tale that takes us from animalistic primal urges, through folk devils, to a contemporary scene of dancing in soaring temperatures and midnight sunshine.
