"Unburdened both by punk primitivism and by improv's disdain for its audience, bands like Polar Bear are the most exciting development for years in post-jazz music."- BBC Music
From London comes drummer Seb Rochford and Polar Bear, named for an animal that can appear cuddly, but is equallly capable of violent flare ups. Its an apt metaphor for this Mercury nominated quintet's indie band ethos that melds clever jazz composition with electronica mash ups and turns from delicate to abrasive in a heartbeat.
