If I had a doller for every band I hear coming out of the UK right now, I would be fucking rich! Bear Cavalry are currently on my radar - and I love love love them!
Formed in Gosport on the Southern English coast Bear Cavalry are a band that are not easily described. Between the four members they use at least seven different instruments to create a unique fusion of styles. Combining intricate rhythms, African chants, trumpets, falsetto vocals and electro synths the band are difficult to tie to any one genre. Despite having such a vast range of musical influe...nces each song still manages to maintain immediate hooks and pop sensibilities.
Check out their Maple Trails EP - you can pick it up on iTunes as well! The first track "Roman Summer" has got me dancing around my room in my underwear! This is British indie tropical pop goodness!
