Bear Mountain began as a bedroom project for Ian Bevis in 2009. By April 2011 Bear Mountain had flourished into a four-piece ensemble with Bevis on bass, laptop and vocals, Kyle Statham on guitar and synths, Greg Bevis on drums and synths and rounding out with visuals and lighting by Kenji Rodriguez.
With their sound constantly evolving it’s unjust to put them in any one genre. It’s as if Animal Collective hooked up with Rubblebucket Orchestra and had a love child. A sexy swagger all of their own, backed by uplifting beats and soothing disco vocals.
Bear Mountain is a must see artist at Camp Bisco this year! Check out their show from July 1st 2011 at The China Cloud and see for yourself:
