Bearsuit: The Phantom Forest
Hailing from Norwich, Bearsuit have caught the attention of some of the most influential names in new music – including John Peel, Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens.
Their new album, The Phantom Forest, is released this month. As such, they’ve been busy touring and promoting the single Please Don’t Take Him Back, which has had high acclaim both here in the UK and across the pond in America.
This album definitely has an electronic 80s feel to it – and could easily be compared to the likes of Everything Everything and Foals.
All the tracks are pretty upbeat, in fact one almost got me dancing in my seat, until I promptly remembered I was at work.
The change between the female and male vocals give the tracks a very different feel when sung individually and complement each other perfectly when sung together.
Overall, this is easy listening, but something a bit different to your standard indie band.
