Interview Magazine // BEAR MOUNTAIN'S ASCENT

With band members' influences ranging from jazz to house music, it's easy to see why no two songs of Bear Mountain's sound alike. They do, though, share some common elements, namely creative bass lines, synth, and a distinct sense of pure fun that bears comparison to some of their own favorite bands, including HAIM, Hot Chip, and Cut Copy. Its current lineup—including Kenji Rodríguez, Kyle Statham, and twins Ian and Greg Bevis—has been hitting stages for the better part of a year. http://www.interviewmagazine.com/music/bear-mountain-xo/#_

SOUNDTRACKING // Greg Bevis Of Holy Oker & Bear Mountain On The Challenges Of Pop

by Grady Mitchell | Greg Bevis believes that pop music can and should challenge listeners. Decades ago, artists like Elton John and Fleetwood Mac were able to make hugely successful pop music that also had substance. These days, besides a few exceptions, that’s clearly not the case. http://scoutmagazine.ca/2014/05/29/soundtracking-greg-bevis-of-holy-oker-bear-mountain-on-the-challenges-of-pop/

Bear Mountain // High Times - Interview Ion Magazine

by Grady Mitchell http://www.ionmagazine.ca/music/interviews/bear-mountain-high-times The star is most definitely on the rise for West Coast band Bear Mountain, whether they have time to sit back, bask, and properly acknowledge it or not. And with all the hard work they put into their music, visuals, production and tours, it’s not only easy to see why they are receiving such deserved acclaim, but also assuring to see such innovation and dedication rewarded. I mean, they have a creative director who turns their music into images in real time on stage. What’s not to love!
