FFO: The National | Frightened Rabbit | The Maccabees
China Bears were formed in Somerset in 2015 by twin brothers Ivan (guitar / vox) and Frazer (guitar). The line-up was completed after meeting bassist James and drummer Dean at university in Guildford later that year.
Perhaps unsurprisingly drawing influence from bands such as The National, Dry The River, Frightened Rabbit and Snow Patrol, China Bears create misery-strewn indie anthems combining ambient guitars, choral vocals and raw lyric writing. The end result is a fantastically precise sound which takes the original emo loud / quiet template of, say, Death Cab For Cutie, but adds a stadium-sized sonic sucker punch. All of which is evinced by their forthcoming debut EP out on August 9th via Fierce Panda Records.
Green Gardens new Double A side single 'Change The Lights // Deadlight' is another step towards cementing the bands an exciting and unique sound. Playing off their old-school and contemporary influences, these tunes demonstrate the bands unique brand of gritty, nostalgic art rock.
4 Piece Indie/Rock Band based in Leeds.
