Show Review

Upon hearing Vancouver-based Bear Mountain's debut record XO, we were elevated by the throwback industrial, electronic textures that were being arranged alongside a truly unique vocal resonance. It wasn't until we witnessed their live performance down in Austin at Hype Hotel that we realized it wasn't only frontman Ian Bevis soothing our ears with vocal timbre, but it was a complementary combo of himself and drummer Greg Bevis. Identical twins in stereo; it's as wild to watch as it is to hear.

When performed in a live setting, the combination of these unique elements evolves into a genre-less musical experience that will nourish the ears of any listener. Luckily, we have this footage to share from The Syndicate's Conflict of Interest party held at Hype Hotel.

The Congo's sleeping in your head
Little baby can't stop she just can't find a reason
For all the pieces that she needs
She takes and takes 'till she's got all the pieces of me
Yeah, and I'm still falling While your Congo choir's calling
And for the girl who made you weakened
And all the things that she's been feeling
And for the girl who never needed All the bags that I've been keeping
She's always too busy believing all the shit that she just kept in her head
without expecting something in return.
Now, I always get paid.
marry you just to pay for the bonnet, I won't.
- Don't flatter yourself.
I'm not a marrying man.
- Well, I won't kiss you for it, either.
- You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.
- Oh, and I suppose you think you are the proper person.
- And another thing, those pantalettes.
I don't know a woman in Paris who wears pantalettes any more.
- Oh Rhett, what do they... You shouldn't talk about such things.
- You little hypocrite.
You don't mind my knowing about them, just my talking about them.
- But really Rhett, I can't go on accepting these gifts, although you are awfully kind.
- I'm not kind.
I'm just tempting you.
I never give anything without expecting something in return.
Now, I always get paid.
- If you think I'll marry you just to pay for the bonnet, I won't.
- Don't flatter yourself.
I'm not a marrying man.
- Well, I won't kiss you for it, either.
- You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.
- Oh, and I suppose you think you are the proper person.
- I might be, if the right moment ever came.
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
Feeling in your bed And baby's just a victim in her own head
My best, you're left
You can't stop the feeling in your heartbeat
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
And I feel it in my head
And I feel it in my head
Feeling in your bed and baby's just a victim in her own head
My best, you're left
You can't stop the feeling in your own head
My love's all gone when I think about it
It's so bad and I can't stand a life without it
Your cold hands running down against my body
And I feel it in my head
And I feel it in my head
And I feel it in my head And I feel it in my head
Just slowly, slowly, slowly slowly slowly
Just slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
I'll fake it so bad and spend the time that we need
And build a house on the hill that falls to the sea
I'll spend my whole lifetime trying to be
And I'll spend it with you if you take it from me
It's like you never come home
Well baby I don't think I can be because if the future is too long
The better side of me I'm faded and so it don't seem right
I'm too faded and so I can't see my life You're a rock but I'm the one leaving
It's too bad because I've never been this deep in
I'm faded and so I can't see my life
We're fading too fast
We're so faded so bad, you're faded so hard with me
But won't you be there? We'll drop it high in the sea
It's like you never come home
Well baby I don't think I can be because if the future is too long
The better side of me
Well I've been thinking 'bout the girl across from me
And I've been thinking about the life that we didn't lead
I'm faded and so it don't seem right
I'm too faded and so I can't see my life
You're a rock but I'm the one leaving
It's too bad 'cause I've never been this deep in
I'm faded and so I can't see my life
Faded too by the sea
We were going strong Never feel the same again
Does she feel it on? Does he love you like I never did?
We were going strong I still call her sometimes, yeah
She feel it on
I still feel it on
Does he love you like I never did? Even though it's gone
I still remember way back when I still feel it on
Does he love you like I never did?
Does she feel it on?
I still feel it on I want to try to comb her hair
We can take it slow I still would call it simple
She feel it on
Never felt Yeah
We're called "Bear Mountain.
" We've got one more song for you.
We're from Vancouver, Canada.
Never felt the same way you do
My heart was fine but now I see the truth
And all the while I tried to see you through
You'll never know the way I needed you
Oooooh oooooh
Oooooh oooooh
Never felt the same way you do
My heart was fine but now I see the truth
And all the while I tried to see you through
You'll never know the way I needed you
Never felt the same way you do
My heart was fine but now I see the truth
And all the while I tried to see you through
You'll never know the way I needed you oh
- All right, thanks a lot you guys.
We're called Bear Mountain.

Artist Bio

Bear Mountain's electro/dance style blends syncopated bass lines and arpeggiated synth chords with live instrumentation and soaring vocals to produce a style all their own. Their approach to the traditional "indie-pop" genre is unmistakably fresh, and powerfully captivating.
