Words: Ellie Ward
After a soft, barely perceptible watery opening, 'False Mirrors' then gradually introduces London producer Jack Ritchie's - aka Bearcubs - lo-fi ambient electronic waves, layered with Ritchie's evocative voice and subtle textures that sound easy, yet to expertly have worked them together to work so well is an art.
Taken from his upcoming 'Underwaterfall' EP out March 10 on All Points, when you look and see that 'False Mirrors' is in fact over five minutes long, it comes as a surprise as it hardly seems it. Magic.
