‘Overgrown’ is the new single by cosmic chill-out duo Aware, out 20th March via Beat Filter/Integrity, as they prepare to celebrate the release of the 20th Anniversary Remastered Edition of their much-bootlegged debut album ‘Catch The Day’ which will be available digitally for the very first time on 22nd May 2020.
Ibiza regulars since 2000, when cult label Hed Kandi was the first of many to add their tracks to chill-out and lounge compilations, Aware became a must-have name alongside the likes of Royksopp, A Man Called Adam, Bent and Zero 7 on the finest sunset albums, including releases on the iconic Café Del Mar label for whose 20th-anniversary celebrations Aware played a full-band live set to a crowd 2000-strong.
The mystical ‘Overgrown’ was inspired by a late ‘90s visit to the Mayan pyramids of Guatemala when many sites were still un-excavated and ‘overgrown’, having been reclaimed for centuries by deep forest. Mark explains:
“Our guide (whose voice features on the track) was a Shaman who told us that some of the hills we could see were actually hidden pyramids and that there remained many such undiscovered places. Using modern technology in 2018/19 it was discovered that this is in fact true and there are hundreds of unearthed Mayan sites in the region.”
