Bearstronaut’s fresh, sparkling post-rock sound combines an 80s synthetic sensibility with modern indie. In their music video for ‘Tropic of Cancer,’ home videos from a retro bygone era share the screen with footage of the band playing Bearstronaut’s “onstage, the unity between classic and contemporary creating a perfect marriage, and when the vocals escalate toward crescendo, the sun rises.”
The band’s crossover appeal and live presence have gained them well received accolades including opening for Kendrick Lamar, Bat For Lashes, Chance The Rapper, Major Lazer & Vampire Weekend to name a few. They also were the winners of the 2nd annual Guitar Center & Covnerese Get Out Of The Garage contest beating out 8,000 other acts.
Led by longtime friends, Bearstronaut is a dancepop band boasting powerful hooks that connect their distinctive style and attitude with goldenera song writing and clever productions. The band’s live performances are more than just a display of skillful musicianship, as they exude an exciting energy that reaffirms the power of a live band. As Interview Magazine puts it, “Bearstronaut combine the euphoria of the club experience with the grounded humanity of a rock band,” making the group distinct among other danceoriented contemporaries.
The band’s much anticipated full length album, Telecoast, is packed with infectious melodies, breezy rhythms, and dynamic arrangements. Telecoast was officially released on June 10, 2016.
