    Initially created as a vehicle for his forays into experimental dubstep, Bracken is the brainchild of Chris Adams, member of U.K. post-rock veterans Hood. Similar to that band's dark, pensive soundscapes, much of Bracken's debut, WE KNOW ABOUT THE NEED, relies on texture and artful sound-design over pop songwriting prowess. Mixing layered drones over stuttering beats, Adams creates a curious hybrid of the post-industrial and the pastoral--a sound that has reference points in music as varied as Autechre, Eno, and hip-hop. Melancholic and brimming with dark, tensile beauty, WE KNOW THE NEED will win over fans of somber, reflective experimental music.

  • Critic Reviews
    Uncut (p.72) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Pick of the bunch is 'Fight Or Flight,' whose frazzled luminosity betrays an affection for both the Durutti Column and The Beta Band."
    Alternative Press (p.144) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] throbbing dub basslines and tons of reverbed atmosphere....It's a nice addition to Anticon's growing catalog of successful experiments."
