Dot Major, founding member of London Grammar, has released ‘Bear’, his debut solo single.
Major announced the track last month, stating that it would kickstart “a journey of my vision through” electronic music. The 5-minute instrumental song, released via Pop Can Records, showcases Major’s love for underground dance music.
“‘Bear’ is a twisted journey through the heart of an Arp 2600 synthesiser,” Major said in a statement. “I wanted the instrument to feel like it was drifting in and out of consciousness, just about holding onto the sounds surrounding it.”
Major has previously released remixes and bootlegs as well as an Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 last year. This is his first solo release, with more coming this year.
