“Where The Sun Sets” is taken from Bearcraft‘s new album Fabrefactions, out now on independent label Australopithecine Records.
A Bristol-based collective led by musician-producer Dicky Moore, Bearcraft recently released their sophomore album Fabrefactions, a project that moves “upriver along the Thames, from Margate, through Leigh-on-Sea and into the capital of England.” Taken from this 10-track journey, “Where The Sun Sets” is an eerie single which was inspired by Dicky Moore’s love of A Sky of Honey by Kate Bush and his sister’s first novel, The Drowning Pool, about the legend of a sea-witch called Sarah Moore who lived in Leigh-on-Sea in the 1800s.
Speaking about the track, Moore stated: “This is one of the few tracks I started writing after I had started working on the album with Joe Reeves. Because of that, I was able to just focus on the lyrical, harmonic and melodic content, and leave it up to Joe to add the rhythmic and synth stuff. A Sky of Honey by Kate Bush has been one of my favourite albums since its release, and I admire the sense of space and she creates within it. When my sister got in touch to ask me to write a song inspired by her first novel, The Drowning Pool, with Kate Bush’s sumptuous and spacious compositions, and Syd Moore’s compelling narrative in mind, the song came easily.”
