London-based experimental post-punk ensemble Bas Jan return with a new expanded line-up and their first brand new music in three years. Released as part of Lost Map’s PostMap Club monthly subscription service in August, and available to stream and share from August 13th, ‘You Have Bewitched Me’ is an enrapturing reflection on the mesmerising power of first attraction and new love. It follows the release on Lost Map Records in 2018 of the Instant Nostalgia EP, and before that, Bas Jan’s critically acclaimed debut album Yes I Jan, which was hailed for its “messy majesty” (9/10, Uncut) and “beautifully fractured art-pop” (★★★★, MOJO).

“This track was a result of an Arts Council funded project,” explains Serafina, “for Bas Jan to rehearse and record as live at a performance space [Cafe Oto, London] during lockdown autumn 2020. It was then mixed by Capitol K at Total Refreshment Centre. ‘You Have Bewitched Me’ marks a new era of collaborative writing as a four-piece – more of which to be revealed soon.”
