“The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.”

A short story that’s equal parts anxious energy and and patient reflection, Words From The Woods explores an instrumental space inspired by 70s guitar trails, dark gospel swells, 8-bit textures and the vocabulary of early cinema. Galloping hip-hop beats and distorted synths are paired with gentle piano and glockenspiel phrases to form a summation of memories, a retelling of moments. The shimmer of light breaking through the trees on a still summer day, the melodic motion of insects in a quiet meadow, the persistent recollection of youth… this is the first in a series of works that explores the continuity and coherence of Bear & Walrus’ lifelong influences.

Words From The Woods is available exclusively as a digital release.
