- Galactic-Forest Rock" is the term used by Golden Bear to describe their sound. The band ties together themes of triumph, hope and excitement, along with rocking anthemic riffs and bombastic beats to create a melodious roar. This roar, combined with Golden Bear's reputation for over-the-top and unpredictable performances has won the group the affection of many music lovers in its Texas hometown. - Galactic Forest Rock contains elements of this earth (rock and roll), and many elements that we would call "spacey", etc. (synths, wild sounds). We love big bombastic beats and melodies. - We all have day jobs. Our singer is a Science teacher. - We have been showcase performers at the South by Southwest Music Festival for a few years. - We performed with such notable acts as Spoon and the Roots at the Summer Breeze Festival in Chicago. - All 3 previous albums (c-side records) have charted in the CMJ (College Music Journal) top 200. The second LP charted in the top 100. - We have toured the Midwest, East Coast, and the South. - The press have said: "Guitar-swinging, trumpet-blasting orgy of anthemic pop... A blur of frenzied dancing and fist-pumping excitement." - SPIN.COM "Golden Bear take their grizzly moniker seriously." - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY ONLINE "Completely original and instantly memorable." - THE ONION "Songs this strong generate a motion and power of their own, powered by a seemingly endless wellspring of hooks and asides." (****)" - AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN "Golden Bear doesn't fit into any mold." - THE AUSTIN CHRONICLE "Endless potential... Simply genius." - TINY MIX TAPES
