"Music Box Pete Blog: Artist Spotlight: Bear Language"

The band has a unique and innovative playing style, and their music ventures into prog-rock territory on some tracks like "The Ventriloquist Part 1" and "Part 2" that give the group a great deal of leverage and make them stand out prominently among all the other bands from the pack.

I've heard of this band previously only by name and have never gotten the opportunity to check out their music, but so I did just last night and it left quite an indelible impression on me with its vibrant rhythms and solid lyricism. - Music Box Pete Blog

"The Saint Rose Chronicle: Indie Band Bear Language Makes Debut in Albany"

"Their presences on stage were perhaps what made their set one of the most zealous of the night. It was clear to see the members of Bear Language fed off each other while performing, pushing each other to play harder and louder. Bear Language’s enthusiastic demeanors were infectious as they bounced around stage. Not even a broken guitar string could stop the high-octane trio from doing what they loved." - The Saint Rose Chronicle

"Soundboard Boston: Bear Language - Hibernation"

Through their songwriting, they have a very rare intangibility that makes them especially unique in a landscape of smaller bands mired in mediocrity. - Soundboard Boston

"Ryan's Smashing Life: Bear Language - RSL's ONE TO WATCH - RED-HOT RIGHT NOW"

I caught these kids live the other day and enjoyed it so much I sought out another of their sets just a few short days later. They really stand out in a crowd. A pair of the new songs in their live set were simply mesmerizing. Others were capable of making even the most stiff hipsters move (guilty). From what I understand, the guys have been working on recording for the last four months and have as many as 20 tracks written and many recorded for a debut record. This is getting in on the ground early and I tell you - this band is already worth seeing and they're only getting better. This is going to be really, really good! - Ryan's Smashing Life


Still working on that hot first release.



Boston’s rising alternative rock trio Bear Language is creating a new movement in sound. Drawing from the grooves of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, melodies of Radiohead, and riffs of Rage Against the Machine, the eclectic group is gearing up to release their debut full-length album. Industry legend Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors, Local Natives) offered his expertise in mastering the upcoming album. The first two singles off the album, “Mary Go Round” and “The Factory,” were premiered by Hypetrak and are now available at www.bearlanguage.com.

In March 2013, the band toured across the country and made their SXSW debut, continuing to wow audiences with their raw energetic live performance. Accolades for the band include The Deli Magazine naming Bear Language in the Top 10 Best New England Acts of 2012, as well as the band being selected among the Top Artists on Red Bull Soundstage by SPIN Magazine and Indie Shuffle.
