Dublin/Wicklow duo Solar Bears will release debut LP She Was Coloured In in September, but in the meantime they're making friends in all the right places. Having being praised highly by numerous domestic commentators, they've now been picked up on by influential blog 2Ojazzfunkgreats. This is the blog that was recently selected by Pitchfork as one of their chosen ones, i.e. contibutors to their newly launched Altered Zones site/blog-aggregator-of-sorts. And they certainly sound impressed: "one of the most astonishing albums that 20jazzfunkgreats have heard in a long time- like Subway soundtracking Fantastic Planet or something. But you are going to have to await until September to listen to it in its utterly transfixing glory. In Planet Mu, those guys know."
