‘Cuckoo’ is the sound of Polar Bear twisted into strange dark electronic pop shapes. Recorded with rising star Jin Jin, it’s a companion piece to this year’s Mercury Prize shortlisted album In Each And Every One.
Sharing the album’s earthy experimentalism, ‘Cuckoo’ moves it several steps towards the dancefloor. That transition is fully realised on the propulsive Paleman remix, built on anxious rhythms and ominous nocturnal atmospheres.
