Track Premiere: Ursa Minor – ‘Hurt’ (ft. Remix by Pedestrian)

Electronic alt-pop songstress Ursa Minor, aka Gabrielle Cooke, is no stranger to PlanetNotion. Following on from the critical success of debut EP ‘Shell’, we are now pleased to announce her glorious return with new single ‘Hurt’, out May 27th on Invader Records. Straying somewhat from her operatic training, Cooke’s whispered vocals are a magic combination of intensity and effortlessness, picking up in a chorus with unmistakable theatrical influences to soar in a style comparable to Björk‘s. The ‘Hurt’ package also features a heavy mix courtesy of Pedestrian (aka Jack Sibley), wherein the single’s strong melody cuts through processed beats and intricate, crystallised synths. In a market becoming somewhat saturated by ambient sounds, Ursa Minor’s classical pedigree and ability to transcend genre sets her sounds apart from the pack.
