Swimming with Bears - Do What Your Told

| Kerri
Looks like
We're gonna seize the day
Give all that you have away
Run towards the sun
Hold tight
They try to hold your feet
But you gotta find a way
If you wanna live

I met three of the four bear swimmers in a notoriously long SXSW line, waiting to see Beach Slang, Bleached, and Minus the Bear, just chatting about music and tattoos, wishing for taco delivery... Anyway, come to find out they are this local band with quite a lot of buzz (well over 100K Spotify listens, opening one show for Weezer last year, booking several SX showcases this year) who've been compared to The Police (less so Eliot Sumner) and get inspiration from Explosions in the Sky. Happy to know that even if I don't catch them performing over the last couple days this week, there will definitely be other chances in Austin later on. Oh, and I think they mentioned getting to tour the whole country later this year!
