wojtek the bear – ‘made out of maps’ | Track Premiere

Here’s another treat from Scottish Fiction Records in the shape of the delightfully named wojtek the bear. ‘made out of maps’ is the first single to be released from the band’s forthcoming album a talent for being unreasonable.

‘made out of maps’ glides out of the speakers all chipper and breezy. The lyrics perhaps don’t sound so chipper but hey, life ain’t always strawberries and cream.  It sounds something like American Football getting trapped in a spider web with the Cure, the more they try to escape, the more trapped and merged they become until they finally break free, released into the world as a super group in a very good mood. Well, that’s my take on it. Yours may be different. Either way, it’s lovely.

‘made out of maps’ is released digitally on Friday 16th March via Scottish Fiction Records.

The forthcoming album, a talent for being unreasonable, will be released digitally and on blue vinyl on 25th May via Scottish Fiction Records.
