Vancouver-based electro-dance outfit Bear Mountain released their infectious debut album, XO, on Last Gang Records (05-21-13.)
XO features seven fresh and captivating electro/dance gems, blending syncopated bass lines, arpeggiated synth chords, live instrumentation, and mesmerizing vocals together to form a unique optimistic sound.
As a live act, Bear Mountain, deliver magnetic performances that captivate audiences from note one. What’s more, the band has just announced that they’ll be hitting the road this month for dates with Bloc Party, and will be performing at this year’s Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch Festival, Governor’s Ball, and Capitol Hill Block Party among other notable shows.
From lush synth sounds and chopped vocal samples, to tropical drum beats and house-drenched kicks, Bear Mountain manage to capture the feeling of infinite possibility.
XO works within so many ’80s tropes while hitting contemporary pop notes-and refusing to be defined by either.”
–Consequence Of Sound
“‘Congo’ showcases a nice build-up not like an avalanche, but like all the snow on a hill melted at once to slop down and water a big garden.”
“Club-ready dance tracks, arena sized atmospherics, and an indie pop sensibility in the songwriting…it’s a pretty great mix and sounds like it will be totally fun live.”
