Introducing: Bear Driver

What is it with the trend of surf-pop inspired indie bands coming through lately? Seriously, is it the glorious heat of the British summer? I somehow doubt it. It could be an aspirational thing, I suppose. To get people in the mood for summer, but I don’t think it’s working.

Sunshine or no sunshine, it doesn’t stop the music from being great. Bear Driver know this better than most, as they’re making summer-tinged tracks from the seaside paradise of Leeds.

Having just released their eponymous debut album, which was recorded live in a disused swimming pool in Bermondsey (in keeping with the summer theme), Bear Driver are riding on the crest of a wave, even it’s made by a machine at the local pool.

All joking aside, they’re pretty good, so you really should listen to them. Stream their album below.
