If Jamie xx And James Blake Collaborated It Would Sound Like Bearcubs’ ‘Underwaterfall’

Introducing 25 year-old British singer/songwriter Jack Ritchie who makes music under the name Bearcubs.

Bearcubs has come to our attention today thanks to his excellent new track Underwaterfall – a rousing electronic track that ebbs and flows beautifully.

The track is the latest in a string of music uploaded to his Soundcloud but it also may be his best work yet recalling the production of Jamie xx and the sparse vocal work of James Blake.

That’s not to say he’s copying the two prominent British musicians. It’s got a distinct individual flavour to it but it’s also got a maturity that immediately puts him amongst heavyweights like xx and Blake.
