Biography

Ignasi Calvo at the piano and keyboards, Jordi Rabascall as singer and both in compositions stemming from these two distinct but complementary mentalities. That is Bearlin's creative core. Their influences are many. We may talk about renown artists like Tears For Fears, Depeche Mode, U2, Pink Floyd and also current bands like Scissor Sisters, Ulrich Schnauss or Mercury Rev. But we shouldn't discard the trace left by people like David Bowie, Pulp, New Order, Simple Minds and Roxy Music. Styles like chillout and British pop give the finishing touch to this sort of influences, always full of new surprises. Both members knew each other when they were already musicians, 8 years ago, and decided to bet for their own path.

Bearlin was the last support band for 80's electronic legend Anne Clark at the Apolo in Barcelona; they also were runners-up at the XII Pop Rock Villa de San Adri¨¢n festival (2007), Heineken Greenspace (2006), Proyecto Demo (2004) and the CityTV/Sinnamon Productions contest City-Muac! (2003). They played at Club 100 from Cadena 100, at the Espacio Movistar, and in many venues and towns across Spain, where they
always had good reviews (Computer Music, Clave
Profesional, Diario de Navarra, etc.) Their last piece was DJ Abel Almena's song I Want More, presented at the Millenium discotheque (Girona) last January and included in several Spanish hit collections (Technics the original sessions and Maxima Fm compilation).

Lyrics

Too late

Written By: Ignasi Calvo & Jordi Rabascall

-You wonder- why!
Was worth giving it a try?
All the efforts done
In a second gone
Mary, the strained ankle ballet
Dancer baby teen
A brilliant career
What a perfect look!
A devoted girl
To her daily work
Been fired, Clarisse, spicy
Rice broken plate the cause
Her obligations, met
No abandoned team-mate
No unfriendly face pulled
Refused new post
-You don’t deserve it-
Daddy’s money wasn’t good enough
Do trust someone
Don’t refuse his hand
They’re not against you
You must help yourself
Michael, the misfit misplaced boy
Will miss the train
Time, time, time is running out!
Have you lost your chance?
Time, time, time is running out!
Maybe this will be the last one
One more crash can’t make you fall
You’d better think, it’s never too late
Focus your eyes
You’ve fallen on the ground
Surrounded by people
You refuse their help
Her name is “Anxious”
And she’s beaten you once again
You’ve lost your train
Do sit on the floor
Calm down
You can’t go on
Truth is the marble fairy queen
Of righteousness
1
Why did you say yes!
Where’s your common sense?
You thought that fear
Would not come again
Michael, the fallen barrister
Father’s needs won that day
What’s on your brains?
What about your goals!
What happens to all of us?
When were you born?
Why not trying. If we believe
It’s never too late!
Time, time, time is running out!
Have you lost your chance?
Time, time, time is running out!
Maybe this will be the last one
One more crash can’t make you fall
You’d better think, it’s never too late
The train is coming. Calling! -Let me in, now!-
Time, time, time is running out!
-I think I’ve changed my mind-
Time, time, time is running out!
-Should we change our mind?-
One more crash won’t make you fall
You’d better think, never again
Another crash will make you fall
You’d better think, it’s never too late
It’s never too late
It’s never too late, it’s never too late
Never. Too late?

So tired

Written By: Ignasi Calvo & Jordi Rabascall

I’m so tired ‘cause I’ve worked
All day long I’m exhausted now
Feeling really weak
Ever so tired as I worked hard
Will anybody award my devotion?
Damn, the reason it’s here, in me!
I’m so tired ‘cause I’ve worked
All day long I’m feeling tired
I sense the weakness in me
I surf the sky
And I find bicephalous ways, your ways
And I surf my mind, I find out I’m sad
Confidence, isn’t the same I feel to you?
I’m writing as I need to talk
Will anybody see my face?
In the street I’m ugly now
Will the young days return to me?
Unknown, unfocused, blurred,
Morphed by my thoughts
It is the easy way, but I need a rest
I surf the sky
And I find bicephalous ways, your ways
And I surf my mind, I find out…
I surf the sky
And I find bicephalous ways, your ways
And I surf my mind, I find out I’m sad
Confidence, isn’t the same I feel to you?
I’m writing as I need to talk
Isn’t the same I feel to you?
I’m writing as I need to talk
I need to talk…

Big to me

Written By: Ignasi Calvo & Jordi Rabascall

any more…
Open your eyes,
Is this the life you dreamt?
I was lost and found
While hiding from the undesired dawn
I’d never felt much pain
While waiting for the undesired dawn
Time, the hours, they never seemed to pass
-Maybe it’s not our time?-
I was expecting a beautiful end. Not that one
You said -no-
I’ll try another plant. I should try a tree
I discovered a seed inside me
And it looks like your face
I improved you. I polished you up my dear
All this wasteful moments
My hours thrown away
-Why-, yeah?
Now the sun sleeps on my head
You have arrived
Time made me immune to you
You look into my eyes
You’ll never have my feelings
Nevermore, nevermore…
The world is big to me

...at night

Written By: Ignasi Calvo & Jordi Rabascall

A button left at Saint James Park
A fallen sigh at Concorde Square
Walking the gardens of Champ de Mars
Totally weird and unaware
Something is driving you out of town
Unaware of the dangers you’ll find
Signs of you all over the place
Watching days go away…
A frozen “Spritz” near Peggy’s house
The “Fragolino” served cool at night
Freighting a galley in the old arsenal
Felt like a sailor? Felt like a sailor?
Felt like a sailor? Felt like a sailor?
I will wait for you
Captain, Lord of signs
I’ll fill myself with patience till you are back (you are back)
I will wait for you
Captain, Lord of signs…
A button left at Saint James Park
A fallen sigh at Concorde Square
Walking the gardens of Champ de Mars
Totally weird and unaware
Something is driving you out of town
Unaware of the dangers you’ll find
Signs of you all over the place
Watching days go away…
Something is driving you out of town
Unaware of the dangers you’ll find!
I will wait for you
Captain, Lord of signs
I’ll fill myself with patience till you are back (you are back)
I will wait for you (watching days go away)
Captain, Lord of signs…

Looking thru God's eyes

Written By: Jordi Rabascall

It seems that everything around me
It’s drying
It seems that I’m a kind of god
Where it’s now?
I take you
I’ll lead thru
For ever
I take you
I’ll lead thru
For ever
You and me, the nature’s calling
You and me, the nature’s calling
You and me, the nature’s calling…
I done it ‘cause I thought I was right
Been mistaken
You drop myself inside (I need to know)
How I can change the way I’m feeling
I need to know (I need to know)
You need to drive me back to
Where I lost myself
Looking thru god’s eyes
I can read my mind
I feel your touch again
Take me where the shadows live
Avoiding the worthless being
You and me, the nature’s calling
You and me, the nature’s calling
You and me, the nature’s calling…
It’s time. Will I drop the bomb?
I need space to know (I need space)
I need space to know (I need space)
I need space to know…
Looking thru god’s eyes
I can read my mind
I feel your touch again
Take me where the shadows live…
