Bear Driver

Described as "...kind of like children's party entertainment by Arcade Fire", Bear Driver mix fuzzy pop songs with ambitious choruses,and a playful use of instruments. In spring 2009 Bear Driver released their debut EP 'Paws & Claws', a dreamy-psychedelic-pop record cooked up in a bedroom studio, that quickly found it's way on to the airwaves. A further release 'Mind Attack' appeared that summer on Dance To The Radio, and soon the band were invited to play Leeds/Reading and End Of The Road Festivals and later appeared at In The City and The Great Escape. Debut single 'Wolves' was released July 2010 through Animal Farm / ADA Warner, and a UK tour followed in October. Since then the band have holed themselves up in the studio writing and recording new material, only crawling out into the daylight to celebrate being invited to SXSW and subsequently being given money to get there with. New tracks are being uploaded every other week in the run up to their trip Stateside, over at WWW.BEARDRIVERBAND.BLOGSPOT.COM WWW.BEARDRIVER.COM WWW.MYSPACE.COM/THEBEARDRIVER WWW.TWITTER.COM/BEAR_DRIVER WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/BEARDRIVER
