Introducing: Bears and Dolls
People, there’s a new group out of Perth called Bears and Dolls. What’s even better is they pretty much kill it on a regular basis. Indie-pop is their game and they are every bit as strange and quirky as their tumblr page would lead you to believe. No, literally, their posts leave me terrified, bemused, and full of giggles – all in the same instant. I can only imagine hanging out with these guys is a constant battle of one-upmanship in the epic game of WTF!?
It’s this sort of approach that makes their music shine. As a six-piece ensemble, they cover just about every instrument grouping you could imagine, often all in just one song. Their sound is uber creative and melds perfectly with Brooke Wilkie’s ethereal vocal delivery. She must be like some kind of human bear angel doll hybrid. Just spit-balling here, guys. Back to the music. It’s crisp and never predictable. I’ve listened through all of their stuff about a dozen times and every go around, it’s like I’m hearing the songs for the first time. I know that reads like a greeting card, but back off, it’s true.
You can download these two singles of the Bears and Dolls Facebook. Make sure you follow them in all social outlets to be there when this band inevitably goes global on us.
