China Bears

"Originally formed in Somerset by twin brothers Ivan and Frazer (lead guitar), the China Bears line upwas completed after meeting James (bass) and Dean (drums) at university in Guildford.

If melodic diligence counts for anything, China Bears are masters of their arty leftfield craft. Through aseries of terrific tours and exquisitely-balanced EP releases 'I've Never Met Anyone Like You', 'StatueStill' and 'All That Distance', they have displayed an innate ability to blend the alt.rock rush with theacoustic hush.

Rousing and romantic, debut album ‘Participation Trophy’ feels cinematic in its grandeur, whilst alsofeeling incredibly personal in its storytelling. It was recorded in the autumnal sunshine of Leith withRod Jones from Idlewild at the production controls. From the driving ‘I Will Break My Own Heart’, thetwinkling ‘Beck and Call’, the electric force of ‘Total Communication Breakdown’ to the blossoming‘Gracie’, there is a song to accompany everyone’s own life soundtrack.

Whether it’s ripping apart the stage with their misery-anthemic indie or captivating the room to pindrop silence singing their songs shoulder to shoulder in the middle of the crowd, China Bears havegained recognition for their emotive high energy and intimate performances
