Leeds-based Bracken, the solo venture of Hood’s Christopher Adams, is set to release his full length album of future pop, analogue tape trickery, and avant drone by ways of anticon. later this month. We Know About the Need originally started as a ‘one-off piece of music with the brief that it had to sound like a pop band being frozen solid and then shattered into a million pieces,’ explains Adams, ‘and then the next thing I know I’ve gone and started a whole new band.’
