As way of intro the The 2 Bears are made up of Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Raf Rundell (Greco-Roman Soundsystem) and combined they make curious Indie-Electro House. Bear Hug is their 3rd EP and it follows in the esteemed footsteps of their ‘Follow the Bears’ and ‘Curious Nature’ EPs. As with the previous EP’s The 2 Bears build their tracks around a solid groove and live tinged drum track giving their music a more dynamic feel as the electro synths and vocals work their way into the mix. The lead track ‘Bear Hug’ is our recommended pick, however all 4 tracks are worth a listen and are all strong contenders for a tidy remix package, which usually follows a 2 Bear release. For example check the superb Midland and TEED remixes on the Curious Nature EP.
