“The fact they could catch so much attention … says something about the potential and staying power of their music.” –

“…a distinct sense of pure fun that bears comparison to some of their own favorite bands, including HAIM, Hot Chip, and Cut Copy… (XO) combines tropical sounds and utopian dreams in each of its tracks.” –

“XO works within so many ‘80s tropes while hitting contemporary pop notes-and refusing to be defined by either.” – Consequence Of Sound

“’Congo’ showcases a nice build-up not like an avalanche, but like all the snow on a hill melted at once to slop down and water a big garden.” – FADER

“…an alt-dance band with tiny drums and big falsettos, tropical touches and a lead singer who looks and sounds like a more down-to-earth Adam Levine.” – Paste Magazine

“Club-ready dance tracks, arena sized atmospherics, and an indie pop sensibility in the songwriting…it’s a pretty great mix and sounds like it will be totally fun live.” – Brooklyn Vegan

After making a splash at New York’s Governor’s Ball and wrapping up a tour with Bloc Party, Vancouver, B.C.’s own electro-dance band Bear Mountain have released their twisted new video for their single “Faded.” PRESS HERE to check it out!

The cinematic video, which was directed by Matt Leaf, is set in a fighting ring and features some interesting characters – including punk rockers, fighters, an aggressive pit bull, and a deranged ringleader played by Mackenzie Grey – taking “Faded” to an entirely different level of awesome.

Bear Mountain released their fresh and captivating electro/dance gem XO last month via Last Gang Records. From lush synth sounds and chopped vocal samples, to tropical drum beats and house-drenched kicks, XO manages to capture the feeling of the infinite and the impossible, all rolled into one.
