Biography

"Remember how we stood in the rain - I feel as though it’s starting again.”

Bauer have re-bottled the magic from their previous Bauer EP and first single ‘Starting Again’ and returned triumphant from their studio sabbatical with a stunning debut album, due for release in Spring ‘10. Containing a mix of already-familiar radio classics and a clutch of brand new beguiling melodies, they have continued their track-record of only ever creating songs that would be a career high for others.

Undoubtedly, there was a happening the first time Bauer hit the studio; it followed a successful stint supporting Snow Patrol, The Ordinary Boys and The Bluetones amongst others. Working with record producer Steve Power (James, The Charlatans, Robbie Williams) the result was a prodigious combination of melody and power, borne of the same magical formula as that seen in their many bewitching live performances.

The first Bauer EP was released to rapturous acclaim by fans and industry alike, and promptly sold out all 1000 physical copies (it continues to sell on iTunes). Stacked with stunning tunes like ‘Connected’ and ‘Don’t You Move’, Bauer had arrived.

Nothing this infectiously melodic has been heard for a long time. With songs centred around pulsating synths, soaring guitar lines and the ethereal vocals of Greg Matthews, Bauer are most certainly a band of our time. For treading the line so skilfully between Indie and Pop, Alan McGee made sure Bauer were played on Radio 1. But the band haven’t stopped there - making the fullest use of iTunes, MySpace and Facebook and with almost an album’s worth of tracks on Reverbnation, they are working to ensure their music is available to the audience it was destined for, and through this they have already garnered heavy rotation on national radio across mainland Europe.

Bauer have already rewarded their massive internet fanbase (10,000+ song plays a day on myspace and still riding high in the top artists chart) with free downloads and sneak previews of the debut record, in addition to music videos and the latest tour information. Their debut single garnered 1000+ presales, and, with promotion from the band alone, the single entered the UK Indie top 20 in its week of release, narrowly missing out on the main Top 40 chart.

One listen to the album will reveal that the mainstream radio and chart is not just where they belong - it’s the only place for these songs.
