Bio

Blonde Bear, the brainchild of brothers Paul & Rhys Slater, began as a studio project in 2012. Experimenting with their sound and taking inspiration from big name acts such as Mogwai and Thursday, their 4-track EP delves into separate corners of the musical world, drawing in as much separation between songs as the band can attain while still maintaining a common meeting ground. "The urgency found within those soaring instrumental rock numbers still holds true a year on; sucking the oxygen out of your lungs one moment and soaring skyward the next" -- Benny Doyle, Time Off Magazine. ------------------------------------------------------------ Full album stream and free download: http://blondebearmusic.bandcamp.com/

My, my what a big rock sound you have? All the better to intensely brood with my dear. The drums are nice and punchy and the guitars are crunchy and dense. Lil' Trail of Dead-ish - which is a wonderful thing.

I could listen to this on repeat for a whole week, I think. It's just a tremendous ball of sound and energy and great ideas from some kick-around kids up north.
