Still working on that hot first release.



The Bear Social are a 4-piece indie/alternative band from the South of England, and consist of a male and female vocalist with guitar, bass, drums and keys. They've been playing gigs on and around the Isle of Wight for more than a year now, as well as a few mainland performances and appearances at minor festivals. Their members are Abbie Hickey on keys and vocals, Lewis Clark on guitar and vocals, Daryl Norman on drums and Ryan Saunders on bass.

The band itself was born towards the end of the Summer in 2011, with Abbie and Lewis jamming together on a few occasions before deciding to get musical reinforcement in the form of Daryl and Ryan. The name itself has even less glamorous roots, conceived of during a name crisis in which they decided 'The Mannequins' just didn't give the right impression at all, and stemming mostly from the band's love of bears. Their influences include The Mystery Jets, Razorlight and The Bees.

Currently, the band are working their way up the ranks of recognisability both on and off island with their original music, and with some gigs and festival dates ahead, are always working hard to make good music and that they hope will please the ears of anyone who happens to listen.
